Synopsis

Album Description
Selected choruses and chorales from the Christmas cantatas of J.S. Bach. In 1954, while still a student, Rilling founded his first choir, the 40-member Gächinger Kantorei, with which he gained an international reputation. Since 1965 he has also been conductor of the Stuttgart Bach Collegium, which frequently performs with the Gächinger Kantorei. Guest tours with both ensembles have taken him around the world. From 1972, Rilling has worked on a recording of all of J.S. Bach's cantatas. In 1981 he founded the Stuttgart Bach Academy, which he also conducts himself.
