In the first of its appearances during this season’s residency, the ensemble presents familiar music in an unfamiliar guise: Bach constructed his Christmas Oratorio largely from pre-existing compositions – namely the three secular cantatas performed here.

  • Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
      • Tönet, ihr Pauken! Erschallet, Trompeten! BWV214
      • Lasst uns sorgen, lasst uns wachen BWV213
      • Preise dein Glücke, gesegnetes Sachsen BWV215
