J S Bach Choral Movements from the Christmas Oratorio Parts I-III Choir & Organ

Famous choral movements arranged for choir and organ

Magnificent sound maintained for this smaller-ensemble arrangement

The movement “Jauchzet, frohlocket, auf, preiset die Tage” (Shout ye exultant this Day of Salvation) is an essential part of the Christmas music repertoire, but for many parishes a lack of instrumentalists and finances makes the performance of the work in its original orchestration very difficult. This new Choir & Organ arrangement of the popular choral movements from parts I-III of Bach’s Christmas Oratorio responds to precisely this need for a smaller orchestration. A second volume with the choir movements from parts IV-VI will be published later.

Holger Gehring has been the Kreuzorganist in Dresden since 2004 and also teaches organ at the Hochschulen in Dresden and Leipzig. In cooperation with the Dresdner Kreuzchor, and as a solo organist and cembalist, he appears regularly in concerts within Germany as well as abroad.
