5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Divine 17 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Herreweghe's Bach is one of the joys of modern music making. It's hard to believe that this recording is over twenty years old: it radiates freshness, and pulsates with the joy of the dance which is the spirit of so much contemporary Bach interpretation.

There's a lot of debate around over the ideal size for Bach choral performances these days. Here we have modest forces expertly deployed, but not the single-voice-to-a-part that others favour. Which is best? It's a matter of taste. Herreweghe for me highlights clarity and beauty without ever losing emotion or the spiritual heart of a work. This is the first time I've ever listened the whole way through the Christmas Oratorio and been enthralled from beginning to end. Each of the six sections feels complete, each feels rightly part of the whole.

Orchestral and vocal soloists are flawless; the information inside the CD cover is pretty basic - but at this price I have no complaints. A superb recording of a superb performance.

At £6.01 this recording is a fantastic bargain. I had never heard this music in its entirety before but was always reminded of it every Christmas. I sampled this recording before purchasing it at a bargain price. Herreweghe is an extremly well respected conductor and he has an excellent group of performers. The performance is delightful and the recording quality excellent. This is one example of being tempted, by the price, to purchase music which I would not otherwise do, and then find that I have got one of the very best recordings of this music.

5.0 out of 5 stars a voice teacher and early music fan 3 May 2011
By George Peabody - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
HERREWEGHE'S UPBEAT TEMPOS PLUS FOUR OUTSTANDING SOLOISTS MAKE THIS 1989 RECORDING STILL ONE OF THE BEST AVAILABLE! (A re-release at a more reasonable price.)

The composition of the Christmas Oratorio by J.S.Bach((1685-1750)is estimated to be around 1734. This is more than the usual series of six self-contained cantatas for the Christmas period as there are many unifying factors at work. The most obvious is the Evangelist's narrative, which is based on the Gospel readings for the season; the six commemorative days are: First Day of Christmas (Luke 2: l,3-7) - Second Day of Christmas (Luke 2: 8-14) - Third Day of Christmas (Luke 2: 15-20) - New Years Feast of the Circumcision (Luke 2: 21) -Sunday after New Year (Matt. 2: 1-6) and Epiphany (Matt. 2: 7-12). Bach's librettist (unknown) was careful to give each part its identity, meditating on various aspects of the Christmas Story.

Everything about this recording is first-rate, from the Chorus and Orchestra of the Collegium Vocale to the ourstanding soloists. Herreweghe's tempos are upbeat and he apparently encouraged a 'bright' sound in the orchestra as well as the chorus. There are some exquisitely performed instrumental solos, particularly on violin, oboe, oboe d'amore, flute and trumpet.

The four vocal soloists performed with dramatic intensity displaying familiarity within the realm of Bach. Michael Chance, countertenor, who sang three major arias totaling twenty-one minutes, was perfection as he produced note after 'golden' note. In Part Five there is a hauntingly beautiful trio rendered by Barbara Schlick, soprano, Michael Chance, alto, and Howard Crook, tenor. Peter Kooy's bass solo in Part Five was beyond description in its lovliness.

It was interesting that Herreweghe seemed to give this work a somewhat romantic interpretation. This was quite evident in the individual solos beginning with Chance's first aria "Bereite dich Zion, mit zartlichen Trieben" (Prepare Thyself Zion). Having several other reocrdings of this work with Chance, it is apparent that his interpretation is romanticized and this trend continues throughout the performance, showing up again in Kooy's bass aria "Grofer Herr, O Starker Koenig" (Great Lord, and Mighty King). I loved this approach of Herreweghe's because it's refreshing and not usually heard in this manner!

It's really exciting to have so many excellent renditions of this great and glorious Oratorio, and most of them are worthy of our attention. I have three other recordings of this work, but for me this one wins the blue ribbon.

GRAMOPHONE, (12/1989): "As Evangelist, Howard Crook is clear and forthright, punctuating and inflecting with all the necessary skill of a good story-teller...The countertenor, Michael Chance also turns in a splendid performance; his "Schlafe, mein Liebster" (Part Two) is warm in tone and fervent in spirit and from a technical viewpoint, beautifully controlled...the Dutch bass Peter Kooy has a lightish voice with a pleasing edge to it...Barbara Schlick's aria 'Nur ein Wink von Semen Hhnden' (Part Six) is enchanting, and she sang it radiantly...The voices of Collegium Vocale, Ghent, are pleasingly blended and quite well-diciplined...Herreweghe's Orchestra plays extremely well and there are fine contributions, especially from oboe and horn."

This has to be one of Bach's most melodious, magnificent and surely memorable compositions amidst a multitude of treasures. If you are a 'Bach-a-holic' as I am, you simply cannot live without this music!
