In addition to his Easter passions, Bach wrote another such masterpiece, but for the Christmas period: the Christmas Oratorio. The Nederlands Kamerkoor wants to make the Christmas Oratorio an annual tradition just like the St Matthew at Easter and for this it works every year with a different European top ensemble. This year for the first time with a French company: Les Talens Lyriques, which became famous in the Netherlands as an orchestra that accompanied the legendary performances of Monteverdi's operas at the Dutch National Opera.
