    Olari Viikholm (bass)Conductor Kaspars Putninš „Christmas Oratorio“ actually consists of six cantatas by Bach, created in 1734/1735 for various church holidays at Christmas time. The first cantata was dedicated to Christmas Day and then one to the Epiphany. The most common contemporary performance practice is that the first three cantatas are performed during Christmas and the following three on the Epiphany. However, this time the audience will hear a cross-section of the entire cycle and cantatas 1-3.
