Going Baroque at Christmas-Again
December 10 : 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$25.00
Musica Sacra continues its tradition of bringing to the Gulf Coast region, the best in the canon of choral/orchestral music with its presentation of Going Baroque at Christmas – AGAIN!
Many of our most treasured Christmas carols have been passed down through the generations from the Baroque and are now well over 400 years old. The Baroque was the time of church-inspired music-making, with choral music taking center stage. These performances were at their zenith at the holidays as singers lifted their voices to the heavens, first in church and then in smaller venues and at home.
Our program consists of the following masterworks:
Heinrich Schütz , The Christmas Story
J. S. Bach, Cantata 140 Wachet Auf
With additional holiday treats.
All with Chorus and Orchestra
