Sir John Eliot Gardiner and his faithful English Baroque Soloists

will be taking us on a magnificent liturgical and musical journey towards Christmas. Marc-Antoine Charpentier’s Midnight Mass and Johannes Sebastian Bach’s «Unser Mund sei voll Lachens», both composed for the feast of feasts, are paired with another cantata by the Leipzig cantor, intended for the first Sunday of Advent, whose injunction to «rise up with joy» perfectly sums up the philosophy of this concert.
