After Handels’s Messiah and the Ode for St Cecilia’s Day, Daniela Dolci and Musica Fiorita present on Pan Classics their version of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Christmas Oratorio.

Based in Basel, Dolci has easy access to many of the best vocal soloists around and this recording has been no exception: the role of the Evangelist is sung by Hans Jörg Mammel and the other main roles are defended by Gunta Smirnova, Flavio Ferri-Benedetti and Raitis Grigalis.

With such a setup, the question of why a new recording of the Christmas Oratorio is needed is easily answered.
