This year's BAROQUE CANDLELIGHT CHRISTMAS concert will feature baroque favorites such as Corelli's Concerto Grosso No. 4, Pachelbel's Canon & Gigue, Bach's "Air on G string," as well as Corrette's Christmas Sinfonia and Comic Concerto "Les Sauvages & La Furstemberg," Locatelli's Concerto for 4 Strings in C minor, and Handel's Passacaille. Musicians from New Trinity Baroque will be, as always, playing on period instruments from the baroque era - baroque violins, viola, cello, violone, as well as chitarrone, harpsichord and chamber organ. In addition, you will be able to hear the amazing sounds of the "Rosales" organ of St. Bartholomew's, played by St. Bart's own organist Shannon Gallier, who will showcase several Christmas-themed baroque pieces on this great organ. The whole concert will be presented in the beautiful candlelight setting - better and bigger than ever before!
Join us for this wonderful festivity, described by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution as "the most satisfying concert of the holiday season – a model of how to do it."
St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church, 1790 LaVista Rd, Atlanta, GA 30329
