£7.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

BERLIOZ: L'ENFANCE DU CHRIST, Op.25

L'enfance du Christ (The Childhood of Christ), Opus 25, is an oratorio based on the Holy Family's flight into Egypt (Matthew 2:13); Berlioz wrote his own words for the piece. Berlioz described L'enfance as a Trilogie sacrée (sacred trilogy). The first of its three sections depicts King Herod ordering the massacre of all newborn children in Judaea; the second shows the Holy Family of Mary, Joseph, and Jesus setting out for Egypt to avoid the slaughter, having been warned by angels; and the final section portrays their arrival in the Egyptian town of Sais where they are given refuge by a family of Ishmaelites. Berlioz was not religious as an adult but remained all his life susceptible to the beauty of the religious music that had enraptured him as a child.
