Advent Oratorio, Burgos, Spain (January 24, 2019)

To commemorate the 80th anniversary of St. Josemaría's stay in this city, an “oratorio” reflecting the spirit of Opus Dei and based on the saint’s life was held throughout the year in the parish of Saints Cosmas and Damian in the city of Burgos. The “oratorio” is a dramatic musical genre without staging, costumes, or sets. Usually composed for solo voices, choir and symphony orchestra, and at times with a narrator, its theme is often religious (stories from the Bible or the Gospel, the life of Jesus, or the lives of saints).

Romana, n. 68, January-June 2019, p. 109.
