About the programme

Saint-Saëns’s Oratorio de Noël has everything one needs in a festive Christmas piece: joyous choruses, a gently undulating siciliano, delicate harp sounds, a transfigured romantic idiom and a typically French wealth of melody. To set the mood, the concert opens with Christmas motets by Francis Poulenc, a Lord’s Prayer by Leoš Janáček, choruses by Britten and Mendelssohn and Jan Sandström’s spectacularly sensuous 1990 adaptation of Praetorius’s carol Es ist ein Ros entsprungen.
