Baroque Christmas Concert 1999 J.S. Bach, W.A. Mozart, G.F. Handel

This feast of Baroque Christmas music from two of the finest singers of their generation – lyric soprano Barbara Bonney and baritone Matthias Goerne – was recorded live at Freiburg Cathedral in 1999. Accompanied by the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, Bonney and Goerne sing extracts from Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, Mozart’s Mass in C minor and Handel’s Messiah. Also performing against the festively decorated backdrop of this beautiful historic building are the German Brass ensemble and the cathedral’s own boys’ choir.
