Johann Sebastian Bach

Christmas Oratorio BWV 248, Cantatas I-III

The first three cantatas of the Christmas Oratorio were written for the Christmas season of 1734. In Erl we will perform the cantatas on December 26 as curtain-raiser to the Festival’s second winter season. The first part describes the Birth of Jesus, the second the annunciation to the shepherds, the third the adoration of the shepherds. The cantatas also ring in a just dawning tradition of Bach performances in Erl. Apart from us wanting to deliver the Christmas message, Bach is a composer close to the heart of the Tyrolean Festival Erl.
