Bach’s congratulatory cantata »Tönet, ihr Pauken! Erschallet, Trompeten!« is rarely performed – yet the music is known the world over. And no wonder. Because Bach set a new text to the four central movements of this cantata and made them a part of his Christmas Oratorio. Today’s concert is a direct comparison of the original and the parody.
