Deutsche Grammophon presents a new box in the celebrated 111 series and starts the season with "111 Classics for Christmas" - 111 musical reasons to be glad about Christmas in 2014.
Most listeners of Classical music agree: with Johann Sebastian Bach´s Christmas Oratorio the festive season gets under way. With the joyful opening chorus "Jauchzet, frohlocket" the mood is set - and it makes the perfect start of this edition. But you will find much more on these five CDs: the most beautiful Christmas carols from Germany, England, France, Italy and America, Gregorian chant, Benjamin Britten´s "A Hymn to the Virgin", Tchaikovsky´s fabulous " Nutcracker Suite " or hits such as Irving Berlin´s "White Christmas" or Leroy Andersons ”Sleigh Ride”.
