J S Bach  Christmas Oratorio

7pm   Saturday 16th December 2018

Parish Church of St Michael & All Angels, Great Torrington


A rare opportunity to hear this marvellous work in its entirety.  Bach composed a cantata for each of the six feast days of Christmas, which can be sung separately, while Christmas Oratorio is made up of all six parts.  The Christmas story is told by the Narrator, with chorus and soloists.  Musicians have sometimes said Bach used up all the best tunes, his music is glorious.  This concert will be a wonderful start to Christmas.

Conducted by John Hobbs, Andrew Millington will accompany on the superb Father Willis organ, and soloists will be Heloise West, Rebecca Smith, Paul Martyn-West and Julian Rippon.

Tickets are £15, children and students free, contact Janet on 01805 628262, see our website or our facebook page, and tickets will be available at the door.  Don't forget the performance starts at 7pm.
