The program will begin with Vivaldi's Concerto in D Major, followed by the time-honored carols "When Christ was Born on Earth," "Coventry Carol" and "Shepherds Shake Off Your Drowsy Sleep." A series of cantatas by Bach will then be featured, including "Mein Glaubiges Herze" and "Susser Trost, mein Jesus kommt."
