Easter Weekend: Easter Oratorio
Saturday 11 April, 3:00 pm - 4:45 pmFree – £25.00
Christ lag in Todesbanden (Christ lay in the Bonds of Death), BWV 4
Der Himmel lacht! Die Erde jubilieret (Heaven laughs! Earth exults), BWV 31
Oster-Oratorium (Easter Oratorio), BWV 249
Two of Bach’s earliest cantatas for Easter Day, Christ lag in Todesbanden and Der Himmel lacht! Die Erde jubiliert are performed here in their revived Leipzig versions. The story takes us from darkness to blazing light, from grief to joy, echoed in the dramatic Easter Oratorio. Told by four characters Mary Magdalene, Mary Jacobe, Simon Peter, and John the Apostle, it canters to the end in triumphant victory.
