Beginning this evening: The Complete Weihnachts-oratorio

Starting this evening at 6:00 PM EDT, All for Hymn will present the complete Weihnachts-oratorio of JS Bach.  A new post will hit every 3 hours until 11:59 PM EDT on December 26.

Special thanks to counterpoint85 over on youtube for posting the complete work and to Z. Philip Ambrose who granted permission to use his translations over here at All for Hymn.  He has the translations of the entire vocal works over at the University of Vermont's website.  Check it out here.

For now, here's the instrumental work at the beginning of Movement II.
