Overview

Program: Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, Cantata 1: Jauchzet, frohlocket, auf, preiset die Tage Corelli’s Christmas Concerto, Op. 68 Vivaldi’s Gloria Featured Artists: Sarah Hayashi, Soprano Monica Reinagel, Alto Yoonshoo Shin, Tenor Phil Collister, Bass Howard High School Choir, Student Voice Exchange Description: Bring the whole family to experience Bach in Baltimore’s A Baroque Christmas, featuring three magnificent and highly celebrated works. Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, Cantata 1, composed in Leipzig for Christmas Day, narrates the epic story of the birth of Jesus. Here Bach is at his creative best–opening the work with great fanfares in the brass and timpani followed by a picture in music of God coming down to earth. If that doesn’t fill you with Christmas spirit, Corelli’s Christmas Concerto and Vivaldi’s exuberant Gloria certainly will. (The “Gloria” text is the song that the angels first sang to welcome the birth of Jesus.) The full Bach in Baltimore Choir will be joined by a joyous orchestra replete with oboes, trumpets, timpani, strings, and continuo to triumphantly exult in celebration of Christmas.
