Peace, joy, merriment, and hope—Christmas wouldn’t be the same without Tafelmusik!
Curated by Ivars Taurins, this festive program spanning two centuries reunites members of the choir and orchestra for the first time in 2021 — a perfect way to launch the 40th anniversary season of Tafelmusik Chamber Choir.
A selection of sparkling choruses from Handel’s Messiah and richly harmonized baroque arrangements of Christmas carols complement the exuberance of Bach and the elegance of Charpentier. Choral works by Berlioz and Poulenc add depth and dimension, evoking a sense of wonder and tranquillity that is synonymous with the season. Pastoral sinfonias by Stradella and Pasquini balance this program recalling the many moods and emotions of Christmas.
