Christmas music by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, Samuel Scheidt, Johann Sebastian Bach, and many others – performed by Dresden's top ensembles.

Among the highlights are the well-known chorales "Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland" and “Vom Himmel hoch, da komm ich her” which are featured in six different settings that wonderfully juxtapose the successful chorale arrangements by Samuel Scheidt, Johann Hermann Schein, Johann Pachelbel, and Michael Praetorius. The colourful programme is rounded off with instrumental interludes by Georg Friedrich Handel (Arrival of the Queen of Sheba) and Michael Praetorius (Terpsichore) with Semper Brass. The crowning finale is Tchaikovsky's "Waltz of the Flowers" with the Saxon State Orchestra under the direction of Hans Vonk. An opulent Christmas treat for the ears!
