Classical Christmas concert

A truly old-fashioned Christmas concert

Christmas concert in Christinae Church with Göteborg Baroque.

This year, Göteborg Baroque wants to present some of the oldest Christmas music. There will be pieces like the lovely Jesu Dulcis Memoria by Dietrich Buxtehude and a heavenly lullaby by Johann Theile, where we can even hear the cry of the little baby Jesus. “Schlaf mein grüner Rosmarin, schlaf mein schimmrender Jasmin” – Sleep my green rosemary, sleep my shimmering jasmine, Maria sings as she rocks her little child to sleep.

Johann Theile

Nun ich singe, Gott ich knie
Michael Praetorius, Es ist ein ros entsprungen
Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern

Dietrich Buxtehude

Jesu dulcis memoria
In dulci jubilo
Das neugeborne Kindelein

Johann Sebastian Bach

Vom Himmel hoch da komm ich her

Christian Geist

Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern
