Christmas Oratorio Parts 1, 2 & 3 (Virtual Concert)

This concert may be viewed from December 12 through December 26. The Christmas Oratorio tells the story of the Nativity with some of Bach’s most evocative music. In Parts 1-3, an opening chorus of irresistible rhythmic drive and remarkable invention, trilling flutes and oboes, heraldic trumpets, thundering drums, and lightning-fast strings are our entrée into Bach’s remarkable fusion of music, narrative, and theology. We also hear impossibly joyful choruses, tender, intimate arias, and a stunning evocation of the shepherds pipes dialoguing across a pastoral scene, with each part scored for soprano, alto, tenor and bass solos.
