VOS 2017 Christmas Concert

This year 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of Christian Reformation and Canada’s 150th  anniversary.  To commemorate this significant milestone, the Vancouver Oratorio Society joins conductors Kemuel Wong and Rt. Rev. Dr. Silas Ng in presenting Josef G. Rheinberger’s “The Star of Bethlehem” and other all-time Christmas selections by prominent Canadian composers.

Rheinberger’s The Star of Bethlehem, a cantata composed in 1890 for two soloists (soprano and baritone), chorus, organ, and orchestra, is a lovely, grand and charming work which recounts the biblical story of the birth of Christ and the subsequent visit of the shepherds and the three magi to the stable.  The original text was in German and will be sung in English.
