Music soothes the savage something or other

Bach's Christmas Oratorio is not considered one of Bach's better works. I love it. It never fails to make me feel happy. Bittergrace Notes gave me the gift of music today, and now I return the favor. Sorry, video embedding of John Eliot Gardiner and the Monteverdi choir is not allowed. But you can listen:

Painting note: Domenico Ghirlandaio
Madonna and Child Enthroned between Angels and Saints 1496

Thanks, that was a pleasure to hear. It will to go on the BitterGrace holiday playlist, along with Ellington's Three Suites and Beethoven's 6th.
