Written between 1730-1734 and intended for use over the Christmas 1734 period, Bach's Christmas Oratorio [BWV 248] is not an oratorio in the same sense as, say, Handel's equivalent works but rather it is a collection of six cantatas to be used on the various feast days between Christmas and Epiphany.
A performance of the full work would take more than three hours. This performance in the splendid surroundings of Southwark Cathedral will include Parts 1, 2, 3 & 6.
We are delighted to be working again with the outstanding Florilegium - the baroque instrument group that played such an important part in our fine performance of the St Matthew Passion in Guildford Cathedral in March 2012.
Please note the earlier start time of 18:30.
