Christmas Oratorio

Last night I went to the Helsinki Cathedral with my younger son. He is a big Bach fan and for him this was at least the third visit over the years.

The concert was Bach's Christmas Oratorio, parts I to III. By the time the chorus Cantores Minores was taking their places I had to put the camera away, so no nice pictures of their performance or the church itself.

For me this was the first time, I only knew the Christmas Oratorio from records. Being there in person made the experience unforgettable. The performance was very festive and I believe for many people it means a welcome stop in the busy time before Christmas.


  1. A wonderful blessing to have intrests to share with your children at this time of year.

  2. I love the music of the holidays and sitting in such a gorgeous setting makes it all so peaceful. What a wonderful outing for you and your son.

  3. Live performances are always the very best. How lovely for you to spend some special time with your son.

  4. What a wonderful place to be for a concert, Ulla! Perhaps this will be a new tradition for you and your son?
