A Bach Christmas
Dec 18 + 21, 2014

Back Bay Chorale Music Director Scott Allen Jarrett takes the Period Instrument Orchestra and Chorus on a journey through Christmas past, from medieval plainchant to the 18th century. Corelli’s popular Christmas Concerto is one of many highlights in a creative program also featuring J.S. Bach’s joyous Cantata 40 and Cantata IV from the Christmas Oratorio.
