Mozart's Attic Thursday Dec 21st at 10:00 PM

Bach's Christmas Oratorio is nothing like The Messiah at all. He wrote six sequential cantatas to be performed as part of the services on six specific days between Christmas and the Feast of the Epiphany in January. We're a little bit ahead of Bach's calendar as we try to match his schedule to a weekly radio program.
 
We'll have Part III of the oratorio this Thursday as we present the complete work with period instrumentation over this holiday season, along with French noels, Romanian carols, and lots more.

Originally from central Massachusetts, Jay has called the Space Coast home for more than 30 years. He began his association with WFIT in the late '90s as a dumpster diver for office furniture in response to a broadcast plea for a new chair from a frustrated disc jockey. (WFIT has come a long way since.)
