Cantatas I, II, and III from Christmas Oratorio
This performance was originally scheduled for NEC’s Jordan Hall, which canceled all performances for 2020-21. If you have already purchased tickets to Bach Christmas, we will automatically reseat you from Jordan Hall into St. Cecilia Parish. We are temporarily pausing sales of tickets for this concert.
What a perfect holiday gift: Bach’s Christmas Oratorio! H+H gives you this beautiful present, vividly realized by our period instrument orchestra, led by Maestra Laurence Equilbey, star conductor of Paris’s Insula orchestra and Accentus choir. Trumpets, timpani, and shining strings illuminate the wondrous Nativity story, as glorious solos and exultant chorales—even a tender cradle song—invite you to rejoice on an occasion guaranteed to light up a dark, wintery day.
