Annual Holiday Concert – Baroque Spectacular

Annual Holiday Concert – Baroque Spectacular The Choir and Soloists of St. Matthew’s Parish
The Chamber Orchestra at St. Matthew’s
"Liner Notes with Tom Neenan" - 7:10 - 8:00 p.m.

   • VIVALDI: Magnificat in G Minor
   • BACH: Christmas Oratorio (Excerpts)
   • HANDEL: Concerto Grosso, Op. 6, No. 2
   • HANDEL: “Hallelujah” Chorus – Audience Sing-Along

This year’s Holiday Concert brings together the three greatest composers of the bar


Vivaldi’s Magnificat, composed for the orphaned girls at Venice’s Ospedalle della Pietá, is full of Italian grace and sparkle, a trait picked up by George Frederick Handel during his long Italian stay during the 1700s and applied to all of his concertos for orchestra.

Bach’s Christmas Oratorio is a compilation of six cantatas for performance on the days leading up to and after Christmas. We will sample some of its greatest hits and we conclude with the traditional audience sing-along of Handel’s “Hallelujah” Chorus.
