During the 11:00 am worship on December 4, our Chancel Choir and professional orchestra ensemble lead worship presenting Saint-Saëns’ Christmas Oratorio.
In 1860 Camille Saint-Saëns composed his Oratorio de Noël for five vocal soloists, mixed choir, strings, organ and harp. The work, sung in Latin, is based on texts from the Old and New Testaments, the Psalms and Gospels, as well as the Catholic Christmas liturgy. A distinctive chamber music-like instrumentation, with lyrical soloistic parts and a modest choral part combine to create a basic pastoral mood which has led this Christmas Oratorio to become one of the most performed works by Saint-Saëns.
Join us on December 7 at 6:00 pm in the Chapel for fellowship and the retelling of the Christmas story, featuring Shallowford members! A spaghetti dinner and activities for all will follow. Children under 5 are free; Children and adults are $5:00. The nursery will be available.RSVP by December 6
