Christmas Oratorio on Exploring Music Starts Monday, 7:00 PM
Leave it to Bill McGlaughlin to uncover the inspiration for any achievement. On Monday he begins a five-part series on Bach’s Christmas Oratorio. While the term “repurposing” has only been around for thirty years, the concept is older. There is music in the Christmas Oratorio that came to us from sources more earthbound, shall we say; and according to Bill, that’s by design.
