Come sing with members of the California Bach Society! Paul Flight will discuss and rehearse choruses and chorales from Bach’s Christmas Oratorio.
The Christmas Oratorio is comprised of six cantatas, five of them with elaborate opening choruses. Workshop participants will sing the opening choruses from each cantata, and there will be a selection
of chorales, such as “Brich an, O schönes Morgenlicht,” and character choruses, such as “Lasset uns nun gehen zu Bethlehem” and “Wo ist der neugeborne König der Juden?”.
As is customary for our summer workshops, scores will be provided for all the music, and electronic copies will be available for download several weeks in advance.
