Christmas Music

including part 4 of the Christmas oratorio

Although Bach lovers will have heard and admired his Christmas Oratorio, for we have performed it on many occasions, several times with all six parts in one concert, it may not be appreciated that there is much more music written by him for the most important days of Christmastide. This is found in his cantatas. In this concert we provide a selection from that music, including one of the two parts of the Christmas Oratorio which we omitted in our last performance of the work. Listeners will be amazed at the variety of invention that is present in our selection, both vocal and instrumental.
