    Bach        'Jauchzet, frohlocket’ from Christmas Oratorio
    Mozart    'Exsultate Jubilate'
    Bach        Magnificat in D
    Mary Bevan | soprano

    Join the LCS for what will be a jubilant evening of festive music by Bach and Mozart. Starting with the overwhelmingly celebratory ‘Jauchzet, frohlocket’ from Bach’s Weinachtsoratorium, we will continue with Mozart’s theatrical motet for solo soprano voice, Exsultate Jubilate. Finally we return to Bach for his miraculous setting of the Magnificat, written for Christmas morning and later revised. The joy and expectation of Christmas are palpable from the very opening bars. Join us live – from hall or home – for an evening of the most sublime and uplifting music this Christmas.
