SCO Chorus 

Gregory Batsleer Chorus Director 

Celebrate the coming festivities with one of music’s most uplifting seasonal creations. Originally conceived for Leipzig’s Christmas celebrations in 1734, Bach’s Christmas Oratorio retains all its joy and colour nearly three centuries later, in vivid musical depictions of the Nativity and the Shepherds’ adoration. The Oratorio’s resplendent choruses and intimate solo arias continue to inspire and delight today, whatever your personal beliefs. 

Czech-born harpsichordist and conductor Václav Luks is one of the most exciting figures in Baroque music. He joins a quartet of fine international soloists for the lavish splendours of Bach’s festive masterpiece.
