Harnoncourt recorded Bach's Christmas Oratorio with his Concentus musicus Wien once before in about 1973. It's a good recording but there are certainly many better ones recorded using period instruments that have come out since then. This new one is fantastic, though. Harnoncourt's Teldec recording of the six cantatas comprising the Christmas Oratorio is the most pastoral of any version with which I'm familiar. That impression is assisted by the presence of boy trebles from the Vienna Boys Choir and the use of the re-constructed oboe da caccia. The instrument is gently plangent in tone and something of a revelation when the LPs were released in the early 1970s.
The Christmas Oratorio (German: ), BWV 248, is an oratorio by Johann Sebastian Bach intended for performance in church during the Christmas season. It was written for the Christmas season of 1734 and incorporates music from earlier compositions, including three secular cantatas written during 1733 and 1734 and a now lost church cantata, BWV 248a. The date is confirmed in Bach's autograph manuscript.

An "All-Star Game" cast featuring Bernarda Fink, Matthias Goerne, Dietrich Henschel, Elisabeth von Magnus, Christoph Prégardien, Dorothea Roschmann, Micheal Schade, Christine Schäfer and Markus Schäfer. 4. Where is Niklaus Harnoncourt from? I happened to meet Tom Krause (a well-known operatic Bass) and talked about Harnoncourt, and he pronounced the name with the ending "t" silent, as with a French word. Is that how it's pronounced? Charles Francis wrote (April 6, 2001): My Eulenberg version is scored for Flauto traverso (4 of them). The Hanoncourt's are apparently an aristocratic family from Graz, Austria, which is where Niklaus Harnoncourt grew up.
