J.S. Bach: Easter Oratorio
J.S. Bach: Ascension Oratorio

The Easter Oratorio opens with a Sinfonia that pitches a trio of trumpets against consorts of woodwinds and strings, and a poignant Adagio for solo oboe. Scored for similar forces, the Ascension Oratorio features an alto aria that mirrors the curves of the Agnus Dei from Bach’s Mass in B minor. Sir John Eliot Gardiner, 70 this year, directs the internationally renowned Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists.
