About the work

The Stadttheater Klagenfurt, together with students from the Gustav Mahler Private University for Music, accompanies its audience into the Christmas season with an extraordinary and atmospheric program. The musical range extends from the opening choir of the Christmas Oratorio by JS Bach to works by Camille Saint-Saëns and Benjamin Britten. In 1858 Saint-Saëns composed his Oratorio de Noel . The work, which is often performed in France, has also found its way into the choral repertoire in German-speaking countries and is one of the most beautiful and contemplative musical works for the Christmas season. On December 4, 1943, the choral work was A Ceremony of Carolspremiered by Benjamin Britten at Wigmore Hall, London. To this day, the work has retained its magic and its effect on the audience
