This morning our choir will bring the Christmas Cantata.
For those who don’t know..
A Christmas cantata or Nativity cantata is a cantata, music for voice or voices in several movements, for Christmas. The importance of the feast inspired many composers to write cantatas for the occasion, some designed to be performed in church services, others for concert or secular celebration. The Christmas story, telling of music of the angels and suggesting music of the shepherds and cradle song, invited musical treatment. The term is called Weihnachtskantate in German, Cantate de Noël in French. Christmas cantatas have been written on texts in several other languages, such as Czech, Italian, Romanian, and Spanish.
Christmas cantata can also mean the performance of the music. Many choirs have a tradition of an annual Christmas cantata.Merry Christmas, Southside Baptist Church Family!
