Christmas survival guide: a playlist to guide you through the day
Regal and fantastic, with some brilliant tunes and soaring vocal lines, Bach's Christmas Oratorio is a perfect classical accompaniment to a lengthy sit-down meal. The music is in six parts, one for Christmas Day, with the later parts written for performance on the 26th, 27th of December, and the 1st, 2nd and 6th of January, and the piece lasts around three hours - so you can take your time over your turkey.
