Magnificat, BWV 243a, J. S. Bach


The Chorus and Orchestra of Emmanuel Music return joyfully for celebratory music from Bach’s first Christmas in Leipzig (1723). A perennial favorite, Bach’s Magnificat is paired with the rarely performed Cantata, BWV 63. Bach brings to life the humble mystery and joy of the season, juxtaposing music both virtuosically dazzling and inwardly poignant.
