About the event
All are welcome to join this striking and unique service as we celebrate the journey of the three kings. The service will include readings, prayers, and music from J S Bach’s Christmas Oratorio sung by the Cathedral Choir with period instrument orchestra.
This devotional service will concentrate specifically on the story of the three kings. It will include Parts 5 and 6 of the of the Christmas Oratorio, written in 1734. These sections are performed less frequently than the Christmas Parts 1-3, and show Bach at his most fluent and inspired.
