Vivaldi Gloria

Vivaldi Gloria


Praetorius Puer natus in Bethlehem 
Corelli Christmas Concerto  
Vivaldi Gloria (in D major)  
Saint-Saëns Christmas Oratorio  


Join us for a wonderful start to the Christmas season, with an evening of festive music which spans the centuries. It begins with Praetorius’s stirring setting of Puer natus in Bethlehem, a medieval Latin Christmas hymn, followed by Corelli’s stylish Christmas concerto, with its famous and magical ‘Pastorale’ movement.  Next comes Vivaldi’s vivacious Gloria, a popular favourite with its strong rhythms and memorable tunes.  We conclude with Saint Saëns’s Christmas Oratorio, which opens with a lilting melody – a tribute to the pastorale movements of Bach and Corelli – and continues in a tender and emotional vein, with beautiful music for the harp.  Sit back and enjoy! 

Duration: 2 hours with interval
