So here I am again, advertising the wonderful sound of the Arcis-Vocalisten choir. Let me cite:
Beyond all the pre-Christmas turbulence and hectic, Evelyn (EG) and the Arcis-Vocalisten München under Professor Thomas Gropper, who are well-known for their expressiveness and creative power, this year again invite you all to come and experience a musical event. You will witness how the contemplative advent charm and the pleasant anticipation directed towards Christmas awakens.
The range is from traditional tunes and works by baroque composers such as Michael Praetorius, from chorals of Bach’s Christmas Oratorio and festive choir pieces from Handel’s “Messiah” to trips into romanticism as in the “Gloria” of the mass for eight voices in E flat major by Josef Gabriel Rheinberger.
With their advent concert, the Arcis-Vocalisten present a selection of impressive works all of which have established their reputation as “classical” advent and Christmas vocal music with just cause. The music reflects the formative emotions and the charm of this very special time of the year from hopeful and trusting expectation to joy about the Christmas miracle.
