Christmas music slot - the opening of Bach's Christmas Oratorio

Bach's Christmas Oratorio is a fantastic piece which is not heard nearly as often as it deserves and it took me a while to find a public domain recording of the opening movement sung in English.

But here is one, with New Trinity Baroque, "Atlanta's most established early music ensemble" using period instruments and ith the Atlanta Boy Choir (singing in English). This excerpt is from a live performance in December of 2006.
