Christmas Oratorio - Part 2
CHRISTMAS ORATORIO – part 2
While accentus and Insula orchestra will perform the first three cantatas in December, the Purcell Choir and Orfeo Orchestra will be the ones to complete the performance of Bach’s Christmas oratorio on period instruments. During the evening, the audience will listen to the last three cantatas of this oratorio, rarely performed in its entirety, thus ending the meditation on the story of Christmas. From the birth of Christ to the adoration of the Magi, the piece conveys a unique fervour and profoundness.
