Nederlands Kamerorkest en Cappella Amsterdam - Kerstconcert
Christmas time is the time for singing together. The Netherlands Chamber Orchestra and Cappella Amsterdam show in the Royal Concertgebouw that the musical Christmas tradition spans centuries in old and contemporary work. Featuring highlights from Handel's beloved Messiah.
Christmas with a selection from Handel's Messiah
Christmas carols are sung at home and in churches, composers such as Bach and Britten wrote music that was especially intended for the dark days of December. In England, Handel's Messiah is ubiquitous at Christmas, which is actually strange for a work written for Easter. Works by Praetorius, his Es ist ein Ros entsprungen dates from 1609, and Pärt show that the musical Christmas tradition spans centuries.
About Cappella Amsterdam and Netherlands Chamber Orchestra
Cappella Amsterdam, one of the few professional chamber choirs in the Netherlands, gives choral music its place in the twenty-first century and keeps the rich choral canon alive. Old and new music play a role in this Christmas program. Once again the choir is working with the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra, a combination that knows how to play a hall extremely successfully.
