*Please note a change to the artist from previously advertised
At Christmas, the timeless cycle of the seasons and the rituals of belief swing into alignment. As a church musician, Johann Sebastian Bach saw himself merely as a craftsman serving God. But when the six cantatas he wrote for the Christmas season are combined into this monumental Christmas Oratorio, the result is something so joyous, so strong and so richly inspired that conventional belief becomes unnecessary. With four outstanding soloists and Vladimir Jurowski conducting, we end Belief and Beyond Belief with a work of art that can refresh any human spirit.
Please note start time.
