J.S. Bach Magnificat
Vaughan Williams Fantasia on Christmas Carols
Corelli Christmas Concerto
Carols for choir and audience
Ivor Setterfield conductor
Barts choir return for their first full concert in two years, featuring Bach’s Magnificat, originally written for performance in Leipzig at Christmas 1723. It contains some of Bach’s most virtuosic and exuberant music, including several seasonal chorale settings.
Vaughan Williams takes traditional Christmas music of a different kind as the basis for his Fantasia on Christmas Carols, based on folk songs collected from around England, which he did much to popularise, making a work overflowing with ‘comfort and joy’.
And for everyone who has missed singing, there will be carols for choir and audience featuring a number of old favourites.
This performance is family-friendly.
