Christmas would be incomplete without the resounding Bach ‘Oratorium auf die Heilige Weynacht’ (Oratorio for holy Christmas).
Ever since it was 1st performed in Leipzig’s main churches of St. Thomas, St. Nikolai, Bach’s 6 part musical masterpiece has become a cornerstone of the city’s identity, musical heritage.
1st part describes the birth of Jesus. 2nd part is the annunciation to the shepherds. 3rd part is the adoration of the shepherds. 4th part is the naming of Jesus. 5th part is the journey of the Magi. 6th part is the adoration of the Magi.
A beautiful musical experience…
