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.
