About

The Magnificat, written to celebrate Mary’s joy after the Annunciation, and the oldest Christmas Cantata by Bach (Weimar, 1713), overwhelming fresco of a Nativity, foundation of the world. With these masterful works, Johann Sebastian Bach opens up for us the gates of what is sacred as well as to our own relationship with spirituality. These pieces, amongst the most beautiful ever composed, are no doubt the best way possible to open the Christmas period. Led here by the very young but nonetheless inspired Valentin Tournet who conducts his ensemble La Chapelle Harmonique.

Recorded live on 22 December 2018 at the Royal Chapel of Versailles.
