The "Magnificat", Mary's beautiful and joyous prayer at the centre of the Liturgy, will be represented by a glorious one written by Bach's son, Carl Philip Emanuel, one year before Johann Sebastian, his father, died. At the time it was extremely highly regarded for its emotional and orchestral content as well as its incredible final chorus. We'll also perform Vivaldi's Magnificat, and between the two works will sing anthems and carols appropriate to the Advent and Christmas season. The Singers and soloists will be joined by the NYCS/Oriana Orchestra. .
