This week sees me embarking on a mini-tour, talking about Bach’s Christmas Oratorio to four Arts Societies across the country:

Monday 9th December, 1:30 pm: Arts Society Ayrshire

Tuesday 10th December, 11:00 am: Arts Society Dumfries & Galloway

Wednesday 11th December, 10:45 am: Arts Society Basingstoke

Thursday 12th December, 8:00 pm: Arts Society Dulwich

Here’s a description of the lecture:

“Celebrate, rejoice, rise up!”: Johann Sebastian Bach’s glorious Christmas Oratorio

 Sandy Burnett’s close relationship with Bach’s music stretches back for decades; between 1997 and 2010 he directed a complete cycle of Bach’s sacred cantatas in West London. In this illustrated talk he explores how Bach brings the Christmas story alive in his Weihnachtsoratorium or Christmas Oratorio, written for Lutheran congregations in 1730s Leipzig. An overview of Bach’s life and achievement precedes a close look at this magnificent work which draws on various forms ranging from recitative, arioso, aria, chorale, and instrumental sinfonia through to full-blown choruses which are infused with the joyous spirit of the dance.
