Gute Hirten (The Good Shepherds) 2019
The Vienna Boys' Choir’s Christmas Concert

* abgespielt

Shepherds play an important part in the Christmas story. They may have been just “simple folk”, but they were the first to hear of the birth of Jesus. Many songs tell their story: how they were lying in the fields when they saw the angel; how they were afraid at first, then overcame their fear; and how they made their way to the stable in Bethlehem, where they found the baby Jesus, and they rejoiced. The shepherds in the Bible represent all mankind: each of us can and should identify with them. The Good Shepherds have become a Christmas tradition here at MuTh. This year the Vienna Boys’ Choir is performing as a large ensemble, singing and celebrating with all types of music Together with Chorus Juventus and the Schubert-Akademie, the Vienna Boys’ Choir recreate the crib in a musical sense, based on the cantata “Uns ist ein Kind geboren” (Unto us a child is born), BWV 142. Although the piece has been attributed to Johann Sebastian Bach, it is probably the work of his predecessor Johann Kuhnau (1660–1722). The audience joins in too: whoever wants to can simply sing along with Handel’s famous “Hallelujah Chorus” and, of course, to “Silent Night”. And that’s how a single concert becomes a festival of music for all the family.

Tickets: Band A €47/ B €41/ C €34; box seats €57; MuTh Club Students, children and young people: A €20 / B €15 / C €9
