Advent time with the St. Thomas Choir members

Treat yourself to a very special experience during the Advent period: The performance of the Christmas oratorio in the St. Thomas Church in Leipzig, with the St. Thomas Choir and the Gewandhaus Orchestra. The series of six cantatas was written with the view of being used once in a performance at the St. Thomas Church during the Christmas period of 1734/35. The piece was first performed again in 1857, and, has since developed into a traditional choral piece performed during the Christmas season.
