J S Bach Christmas Oratorio (Parts 1, 2, 3 & 6)

We are sorry to announce that Ed Lyon is unable to perform with us tonight, but delighted to welcome David Webb in his place to sing the role of the evangelist.

With Christmas fast approaching, join us for Bach’s wonderful retelling of the nativity story with Lars Vogt, RNS and Chorus.

Originally written as six separate cantatas for performance on six feast days over the festive season, tonight we hear Parts 1, 2, 3 and 6, describing the birth of Jesus, the annunciation to the shepherds, the adoration of the shepherds and the adoration of the Magi.

Featured in The Telegraph’s 50 must-see shows for Christmas!
