“Prepare Thyself Zion With Tender Affection!” Christmas Oratorio Part 1 of Johann Sebastian Bach
Joyfully, yet serenely transporting us back to the days just prior to the Holy Birth, experience Bach’s “Christmas Oratorio, Part 1,” presented by our WPC Chancel Choir, Westwood Chamber Orchestra, esteemed Soloists, and directed by our own Maria Newman on Sunday, December 6, at both worship services. Filled with glorious anticipation, this masterwork touches upon the joy of the world as the Savior is awaited, a King to be born in poverty, yet surrounded by heaven’s angels and Holy Light.
Written in 1734, and composed for the beginning of Advent, this extraordinary music is sure to put you in the spirit of Advent, as trumpets herald their call that the time of prophetic fulfillment is upon us. In our intimate sanctuary, absorbing the music of J.S. Bach, let us join together to worship!
