Bach's Magnificat with King's College Choir - Britten Sinfonia

Bach’s Magnificat with King’s College Choir

06 Dec 2014


Brandenburg Concerto No 2


Quatre motets pour le temps de Noel


Lauda per la Nativita del Signore




And so this is Christmas! Cambridge’s King’s College Choir and Britten Sinfonia once again join forces under the baton of Stephen Cleobury in a programme of jubilant energy and quiet reflection. Christmas 1723 in Leipzig must have been a memorable one for those lucky enough to hear the first performance of Bach’s glorious Magnificat. Respighi’s exquisite musical drama celebrates the birth of Jesus, and Poulenc’s haunting motets, with their beguiling harmonies, bring that very special sense of peace and wonder.
