Cathedral Christmas Concert

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 13, 2014
7 PM – 9 PM, CATHEDRAL

The annual Christmas Concert at St. John the Divine features Gloria in excelsis Deo, J.S. Bach’s Christmas Cantata from 1745. This music, later incorporated into his Mass in B minor, sets a joyful, triumphant text not only in tribute to the birth of Jesus, but also in commemoration of the Peace of Dresden, signed on Christmas Day in 1745. Alongside splendid a cappella motets and beloved Christmas carols, this program will also feature the New York premiere of “Monday’s Child” by James Adler, performed by the Cathedral Choristers under the direction of Malcolm Merriweather.
