Although in the busy circumstances of his own life economy of effort would almost certainly have influenced his working methods, the fact remains that, in his parodies, he reveals a deep penetration of the texts. The next three numbers are concerned with Advent.

A single chorale verse with flutes, oboes and strings follows. In the following number the Evangelist introduces the Christmas story in simple recitative.

Part Two of the Christmas Oratorio, performed on the second day of Christmas, concerns the announcement to the shepherds of the Birth of Christ. Albert Schweitzer plausibly interpreted the piece as a serenade by antiphonal angelic choirs flutes and strings and shepherds oboes. The tripartite form of the movement, in which the instrumental groupings remain more or less constant, consists of an exposition, development and varied recapitulation. A short recitative, in which the Evangelist sets the scene, leads to a G major chorale.
The following simple recitative for the Evangelist is a preface to the large-scale G major chorus with full instrumental participation. The simple bass recitative leads to the concluding movement. The three following sections are interlinked. This in turn gives way to a bass recitative accompanied by two flutes. The piece is a parody of an alto and tenor duet in BWV Its brightly coloured key, its warm woodwind textures and its dance-like character lend the piece irresistible charm. A simple tenor recitative Evangelist prepares the ground for the second aria of Part Three.
This is in B minor and scored for alto voice accompanied by an elaborate violin solo with continuo. It is probably the only newly composed aria in the Oratorio and one over which, judging by its many corrections, Bach took great pains. A short alto recitative with flutes and continuo precedes the second chorale of Part Three. A simple recitative Evangelist provides a brief link between the second and third chorales following which a reprise of the opening chorus, identically scored, concludes the Third Part. This cantata is framed by choral movements in F major. They provide a distinctive instrumental colouring not found elsewhere in the Oratorio.
The text almost throughout the Fourth Part is a reflection and a meditation on the naming of Jesus. Following the chorus a simple tenor recitative Evangelist leads to a subtly constructed accompanied bass recitative. This aria, in which the oboe echoes both itself and the voices, derives from the seventeenth-century practice of spiritual dialogue between God and the Soul. The second aria is for tenor.
Its intimate, dance-like character, playful rhythm and radiantly convivial key imbue the piece with instant and enduring appeal. Its text is one of thanksgiving while the remaining movements of Part Five are concerned with the Wise Men from the Orient, the Star in the East and the anxiety of King Herod.

Following the chorus a simple recitative Evangelist leads to a Chorus of the Wise Men with two inserted passages of accompanied recitative for alto. Two simple recitatives for the Evangelist framing an accompanied recitative for alto with strings lead to a terzetto in B minor for soprano, alto and tenor with violin solo and continuo. This is set in simple four-part harmonization.
Only the flutes, additionally required for the opening chorus of Part One, are absent. The movement is of great splendour and complexity of construction, beginning with an extended orchestral introduction, and with chorally fugal flanking sections and a middle section of freer canonic structure. Two ensuing sections of recitative, the first for tenor Evangelist and bass Herod , the second for soprano with strings, lead to the first aria. Its character is dance-like and its structure somewhat akin to a concerto movement.
Two simple recitatives for the Evangelist frame a chorale verse. These instruments further provide the accompaniment of the B minor tenor aria which ensues. Like the previous aria this, too, has the character and scheme of a concerto movement.
A final recitative for a quartet of voices leads to the concluding movement. It is a generously laid out D major chorale in which the soprano strand declaims the hymn melody line by line with homophonic support from the alto, tenor and bass strands. All is suffused with a joyful orchestral concertante dominated by the first trumpet.
