    Description: Bach's Christmas Oratorio

    See Sydney Philharmonia Choirs' Chamber Singers in Bach's brilliant and expressive Nativity story.

    “Shout for joy, rise up and praise these days!”
    JS Bach’s Christmas Oratorio began life as six cantatas for church services over the Leipzig Christmas season but it’s so much more. This is easily one of the most inspired musical enactments of the Nativity, and for this concert Brett Weymark has chosen the first three parts, from the exultant opening to the tender scenes in the stable and the festive arrival of the shepherds.

    Johann Sebastian BACH Christmas Oratorio, BWV 248
    Part 1. For the 1st day of the Nativity (“Jauchzet, frohlocket!”)
    Part 2. For the 2nd day of the Nativity (“Und es waren Hirten”)
    Part 3. For the 3rd day of the Nativity (“Herrscher des Himmels”)
