Christmas Oratorio (excerpts) J S Bach (1685-1750)
  • Come now with gladness
  • Prepare yourself, Zion
  • O Lord of all Creation
  • And she brought forth her first-born son
  • Our Lord who comes to earth below
  • Mighty Lord and King of Glory
  • Ah, dearest Jesus, babe divine
  • Break forth, O glorious morning light
  • And this is the sign to you
  • Behold! Within a humble stall
  • Ye shepherds haste with pure delight
  • Slumber beloved, in blissful repose
  • And suddenly there was with the angel
  • Glory to God in the Highest
  • 'Tis good to hear the angels sing
  • We sing to Thee, almighty King
  • Lord of Creation
