Bach's Christmas Oratorio
**Tickets still available at the door**

Johann Sebastian Bach compiled his so-called "Christmas Oratorio" BWV 248 for the Christmas Season of 1734 in Leipzig. The name genre "Oratorio" is slightly misleading, in that the Christmas Oratorio is in actuality a collection of six Cantatas that were performed during the major Feasts of the Christmas Season, starting with Christmas Day and ending January 6th (the Feast of the Epiphany and the end of the 12 Days of Christmas).

Choral Arts will perform J. S. Bach's Christmas Oratorio in its full form. One of Bach's larger works, the Christmas Oratorio is infrequently performed in its entirety, due to the fact that each cantata within the work has a different instrumentation. Additionally, the work has particularly virtuosic choral and solo writing, making the piece inaccessible to many ensembles.

In the popular tradition of many European orchestras, choirs, and opera companies, Choral Arts Philadelphia will present the Christmas Oratorio on New Year's Eve, December 31, 2014, at the Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral. An extended intermission will take place where food and drink concessions will be available.
