MUSICAL JOURNEY (A) - A CHRISTMAS MUSICAL TOUR: Austria / Switzerland / Germany (NTSC)

AUSTRIA / SWITZERLAND / GERMANY
A Christmas Musical Tour

 

The Places

The tour starts in Vienna at the Christkindl Market and other Christmas scenes include the grotesque Krampus masqueraders, with St Nicholas, in Steyr. In Switzerland we see the great monastery church at Einsiedeln and in Bavaria the Abbey Church at Ottobeuren. In Austria scenes of Salzburg and its Christmas market are followed by Christmas cribs at Steyr and in the great cathedral at Linz, ending gazing upwards at the great Christmas fresco that decorates the dome of the monastery church at Einsiedeln.

 

The Music

The music chosen for this tour is principally taken from the works of Handel and Johann Sebastian Bach, including excerpts from the former’s Messiah and from two organ concertos, and from Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, with the carol Silent Night heard in its original setting at the little church in Oberndorf, for which it was written.
