Merry Christmas!!

Christmas time without the Christmas Oratorio of J.S. Bach is unimaginable...

The Spirit of Turtle produced two versions over the years, the same music, both great performances by baroque specialists pur sang, but with rather different settings.

Combattimento Consort Amsterdam/Capella Amsterdam & Jan Willem de Vriend, our recording from 2007 with traditional choir setting, and the newly released version by La Petite Bande/Sigiswald Kuijken, a one-to-a-part version. The latter is referred to by Klassik Kompas as "The New Reference"...

Ergo, your double Album of the Week is one of these two versions from € 26,95 now for € 19,95!
