Module Description

The Christmas Oratorio of Bach is really six closely connected cantatas, each focussing on a significant moment in the birth stories of Jesus from the Gospels. Our module will devote one day to each component cantata, playing close attention not only to the music but also to the interpretative ‘lens’ of both text and music. 

Kieran O’Mahony is an Augustinian friar and a biblical scholar, with particular interest in the letters of St Paul and the Gospel according to John. He taught for many years in the Milltown Institute of Theology and Philosophy (Dublin). Currently, he is publishing a 9-volume series called “Hearers of the Word” on the readings for Advent, Lent and Eastertide. With Jessie Rogers and Seán Goan he is on the team of the newly formed Tarsus Scripture School. For more information visit www.tarsus.ie.
