The Lydian Singers present J.S. Bach Christmas Oratorio in Nowra
Sunday 08 December 2019
The Shoalhaven Lydian Singers will present J.S. Bach’s Christmas Oratorio in the Kiama Catholic Church. The concert is described as the Oratorio of Christ's birth, led by narration with beautiful orchestral accompaniment; plus some carols - a Christmas feast!
The Lydian Singers’ Musical Director, Katharina Raffelsberger, has adapted the Oratorio Parts One to Three for the choir’s performance – the two most famous Chorales Jauchzet, frohlocket and Herrscher des Himmels and many others will be interspersed with sensitive narration written and performed by Peter Barley, with arias sung by some of the Lydians’ best soloists, and accompaniment by a small orchestra comprising well-known local players on strings, winds and brass. Together the Oratorio will be a beautiful, memorable performance.
