Sinfonia da Camera and the University of Illinois Oratorio Society team up to present a holiday spectacular you will remember for years to come. Enjoy Gerald Finzi's lyrical approach to the holiday period with his Magnificat. Listen to excerpt from J.S. Bach's Weihnachtsoratorium (Christmas Oratorio), written for each of the major feast days of the Christmas Period. And enjoy some of your favorite English Christmas Carols in Ralph Vaughan Williams' Fantasia on Christmas Carols. You'll hear favorites like On Christmas Night all Christians Sing (the Sussex Carol) and The First Noel. We hope you are able to join us for this holiday tradition!

 

Finzi: Magnificat
Bach: Weihnachtsoratorium (Christmas Oratorio)
Vaughan Williams: Fantasia on Christmas Carols
