J.S.Bach: Christmas Oratorio - St Michaels Church - Beccles

Beccles Choral Society presents Bach's 'Christmas Oratorio' at 4.30pm on Sunday 25th November 2018

Following their sell-out concert, with friends from Gippeswyk Singers, at Snape Maltings Concert Hall in May, Beccles Choral Society returns to St. Michael’s Church Beccles at the end of November.

The choir, together with the Kingfisher Sinfonietta and four professional soloists, will sing J.S.Bach’s much loved ‘Christmas Oratorio.’
First performed in 1753, this concert will take the audience back to a time when strings, woodwind and harpsichord were the main instruments of the day and the music was light and lyrical. Originally written in German to be sung and played one movement a day over the Christmas period, the choir will sing a translation into English of a well-chosen selection of the arias, recitatives and choruses, telling the story of the Nativity.
