Performed by the Chancel Choir and soloists conducted by Minister of Music Andrus Madsen with trumpets, timpani, flutes and strings.
The work centers on the Luke account of Jesus’ birth. The opening chorus is perhaps the most joyful thing Bach ever wrote, and you won’t want to miss it.
You will also want to come early to hear the prelude which will be a rather grand baroque overture with trumpets timpani and strings.
