From Bach’s Christmas Oratorio

Here is alto Angelika Kirchschlager singing “Bereite dich Zion.” Translation of the text:

Prepare thyself, Zion, with tender desire/ the Fairest and Dearest to behold with thee soon!/ Thy cheeks/ today must shine the lovelier;/ hasten most ardently the Bridegroom to love.

Merry Christmas!
