Johann Sebastian Bach wrote over 200 church cantatas, and the Bach Collegium Japan is intent on performing every one of them — and in fact did so, in chronological order, from 1995-2013.

Additionally, the group recorded all of the cantatas in an effort that took 18 years and resulted in 55 discs. Bach’s oratorio is written in six parts, each celebrating one of the major feast days of the Christmas period. The Bach Collegium brings its signature crispness and purity to a beloved Bach masterpiece, highlighting the polyphonic wonder of Bach’s rich, imaginative cantatas that were written to celebrate Jesus’ birth.
