CHRISTMAS ORATORIO - Accentus English version

CHRISTMAS ORATORIO

Program

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH
Weihnachtsoratorium, cantates 1, 2 et 3

1h30 sans entracte

For this holiday season, accentus pays homage to Johann Sebastian Bach by performing the first three cantatas of his Christmas Oratorio. With the participation of Laurence Equilbey and her period instrument ensemble Insula Orchestra, the choir deploys all of its sonorities and sensitivity to voice the jubilation felt when first hearing of the birth of Christ, the intimacy of the nativity scene, or the dance from the adoration of the shepherds. A sumptuous piece featuring flamboyant instrumentation and radiant choral parts.
