J.S. Bach's Cantata 151
SÃ¼ÃŸer Trost, mein Jesus kÃ¶mmt
Christmas Day ChristMass features one of Bach's most treasured Christmas cantatas which translates "Sweet comfort, my savior comes." Bach composed the work in Leipzig in 1725 for a quartet of soloists and small instrumental ensemble. Though intended for Saint John's Day, the third day of Christmas, the cantata's libretto in praise of the Word made flesh is appropriate for Christmas day.
There is no separate 8:45 mass or 1:30 misa this day. There is no 5:00 Jazz Vespers. All are encouraged to take part in the 11:00 A.M. Mass/Misa.
