Hope, Love and Joy!
The LSC Choir and Guests will present, with soloists and a 20-piece orchestra, two Christmas works by Johann Sebastian Bach. The second of six sections of Bach's Christmas Oratorio will open the service; this portion includes the angels' announcement of good news to the shepherds, as well as one of Bach's most revered chorales, Break Forth, O Beauteous Heavenly Light. The orchestration for this work consists of 2 flutes, 4(!) oboes, strings and harpsichord.
The Oratorio will be followed by one of Bach's Christmas Cantatas, Unser Mund sei voll Lachens (Our Mouths are Full of Laughter). Its addition of 3 trumpets and timpani to the instrumental forces of the previous work highlight rejoicing and praise to God.
Come and enjoy!
