Johann Sebastian Bach  Christmas Oratorio, Cantatas 2, 5 & 6
Francis Poulenc  Hodie Christus Natus Est
Selection of European Carols

The Goethe Choir return to complete the cycle of Christmas Oratorio cantatas by Johann Sebastian Bach.  The program is complemented by a selection of well-loved European carols including the traditional ‘Stille Nacht’ in three languages.

The Goethe choir will also present the rarely heard in Ireland 1952 motet ‘Hodie Christus Natus Est’ by French composer Francis Poulenc, a member of a somewhat notorious group of young French composers who became known as ‘Les Six’.

Alison Browner, an Irish mezzo-soprano now based in Germany and a former member of the choir, joins forces with her daughter, soprano Hannah Gries.

Presented by Goethe Choir, Sponsored by The Goethe Institute Dublin
