The remastered edition of the legendary Christmas Oratorio with the Dresden Kreuzchor and the Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra under Martin Flämig has been one of the most authoritative recordings of Bach’s masterpiece for decades. This highly acclaimed recording from 1974 / 1975 includes Johann Sebastian Bach’s complete masterpiece with an excellent cast. Not only do the soloists (Arleen Augér, Annelies Burmeister, Peter Schreier, Theo Adam, Michael Wittig) and the Dresden Philharmonic (first trumpeter is again Ludwig Güttler) shine here, but also the Dresdner Kreuzchor, which is in top form here under the direction of Martin Flämig. Radiant chorales and powerful arias dominate the recording, which, with a well-balanced, clear but warm overall sound, also leaves nothing to be desired in terms of recording technology.
