Description:

Stephen Alltop, conductor; Moyue Zhou, assistant conductor; Alice Millar Chapel Choir and soloists; Baroque Music Ensemble

A concert offering a little “Christmas in May,” and Bach at his most glorious! The program includes Bach’s exultant Cantata No. 110, Unser Mund sei voll Lachens (Our mouths are filled with laughter), first performed in Leipzig on December 25, 1725. The Cantata 191, Gloria in excelsis Deo, features a very large baroque orchestra and glorious passages for chorus and soloists. This cantata was later used by Bach for his Mass in B Minor and is among the most brilliant choral passages ever written. A sparkling Concerto for Two Violins in G Major by Georg Philipp Telemann rounds out this uplifting concert.
