BACH Christmas Oratorio

Artists

Richard Tognetti Director & Violin
Choir of London
Nicholas Mulroy Evangelist


The last time the ACO performed Bach’s Christmas Oratorio critics, audiences and the Orchestra themselves considered it the concert of the year. Bach’s monumental and colourful work was composed in 1733/34 and was written for each of the six major feast days of the Christmas period. It’s the quintessential Christmas choral extravaganza.

Joining the ACO once again for this wonderfully festive oratorio is the Choir of London which was established in 2004 to perform this very work with a Palestinian Choir on the West Bank. Nicholas Mulroy makes a welcome return as the Evangelist, ably joined by an ensemble of star singers.

With an early starting time and running at just under three hours, these performances will include a one-hour meal interval.
