Tafelmusik Chamber Choir

So much in our world has changed, but Christmas wouldn’t be the same without Tafelmusik!

Co-curated by Ivars Taurins and Elisa Citterio, this festive program brings the choir and orchestra together for the first time in 2020. Joyous choruses and tender chorales from cherished favourites, Handel’s Messiah and Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, are paired with richly harmonized baroque arrangements of Christmas carols.  

The orchestral works evoke the many moods and emotions associated with Christmas, from the irrepressible exuberance of Vivaldi’s La Pastorella to the elegance of French noels arranged by Lalande and Corrette to the charm of Heinichen’s Pastorale.  Join us to find comfort and connection in traditions new and old.

PROGRAM INCLUDES: 

  • Choruses from Bach Christmas Oratorio & Handel Messiah
  • Lalande & Corrette Symphonies des Noëls 
  • Vivaldi La Pastorella 
  • Carols in baroque arrangements
