Happy birthday, Hector

December 11, 2018

It’s the birthday of French composer Hector Berlioz (1803-1869), whose oratorio L’enfance du Christ received its premiere in Paris on December 10, 1854. It tells the story of Mary and Joseph escaping to Egypt after Herod orders the massacre of the innocents. This beautiful chorus, “L’adieu des bergers,” depicts the shepherds at Bethlehem bidding farewell to the holy family as they depart Judea for Egypt.
