The Bach Choir of Bethlehem gave the American premiere of Bach's Christmas Oratorio in 1901, but has not performed Parts 1, 2 and 3 of this glorious work for more than ten years. Join us as we follow the shepherds to Bethlehem and exalt in the transcendant beauties of Bach's pastoral sinfonia, choruses of angels bringing their message of peace, an enchanting lullaby sung to the baby Jesus, and Mary pondering all these things in her heart.
