The GREATEST Work Out Music

has got to be Bach's Christmas Oratorio. Talk about music that gets the blood pumping! "Jauchzet, frohlocket, auf, preiset die Tage!" but the most joyous of all to me is the duet on "Herr, dein Mitleid, dein Erbarmen" - you bet it comforts and sets us free!!! Just listening I thought: this is what JOY sounds like, heavenly joy.

Amen! The Christmas Oratorio is de rigeur Christmas travel music for the family Juhl every year. A trip to Wisconsin wouldn't be complete without J.S. Bach!
