Join us for one of Oxford’s most evocative seasonal events in the magical setting of New College Chapel. Oxford Bach Soloists’ Christmas Oratorio is sure to be a memorable way to celebrate Christmas this year. There will be a performance of J. S. Bach’s much loved telling of the Christmas story with the first three parts of his 1734 Christmas Oratorio. This glittering masterpiece describes the Birth of Jesus, the annunciation to the shepherds, and the adoration of the shepherds.
