Bach’s Christmas Oratorio

by Thorendal

Bach's Christmas Oratorio

I spend Saturday afternoon in the Church of Holmen listening to Bach’s Christmas Oratorio. I loooove going to church for classical christmas music. Usually I go for Händel’s Christmas Messiah - I don’t know why really as I prefer/really like Bach’s piece.
When I was a sweet little girl with long blond hair I used to play it myself on piano - but that was many years ago! But maybe that is why I prefer Bachs’ Christmas Oratorio to Händel’s Christmas Messiah.

Anyways it was very beautiful and I can strongly recommend to find a church where they have chosen Bach this christmas.

Thanks to my sweet sister and my colleagues for an interesting afternoon.
