City Choir Dunedin presents Christmas Oratorio



Hear JS Bach’s Christmas Oratorio live on 16 December in the Dunedin Town Hall, performed by City Choir Dunedin, DSO and soloists with David Burchell.

Friday 16 December 2016 7:30 pm, Dunedin Town Hall

SOLOISTS Lois Johnston (soprano), Claire Barton (mezzo-soprano), Iain Tetley (tenor) and Robert Tucker (bass)

JS Bach’s Christmas Oratorio is a cycle of cantatas unified by the Christmas story and was first performed over six days (the first three days of Christmas, New Year’s Day, Sunday after New Year and the Feast of the Epiphany) in 1734/5. Like the St. Matthew Passion and St. John Passion, an Evangelist narrates this work.

From the splendid opening chorus of the first cantata, to the final chorale and trumpet fanfare the music takes the listener through a range of emotions from praise, joy and adoration to rage, fear and, finally, glory.
