Bach’s Christmas Oratorio With the ACO
Richard Tognetti will direct the Australian Chamber Orchestra and the Choir of London alongside evangelist Nicholas Mulroy for two not-to-be-missed Christmas concerts. Bach’s “Christmas Oratorio” is the quintessential Christmas choral extravaganza and sees the composer at his most exuberant and joyful. It tells the story of the birth of Jesus through six cantatas that move from the Nativity, through to the birth, and the arrival and worship of the Three Kings. Evangelist Nicholas Mulroy will perform as narrator throughout the concerts, singing lines from the gospels of St Luke and St Matthew.
