“The singers and instrumentalists of the ABS Choir and Orchestra were, as always, magnificent. There are simply not enough superlatives to adequately describe their mastery and musicianship and do justice to their dedication and artistry.” – Niels Swinkels SFCV
In this special abridged evening performance, you’ll hear the Christmas portion (Part I) of Handel’s Messiah along with music of the season by Baroque composers Giovanni Valentini, Johann Christoph Pez, and Marc-Antoine Charpentier.
Together with the best highlights of Handel’s peerless composition, ABS will perform a sweetly captivating concerto for two “pastorale” recorders, an Italian sinfonia composed especially for Christmas, and an evocative musical painting of Christmas night by one of the most treasured composers of the Parisian Baroque.
