The Christmas Oratorio
The Christmas OratorioGöran Tunström
In Sunne all, once again, are gathered to perform Bach’s jubilant Christmas Oratorio. From there, the story expands: it spans over three generations, begins in the thirties and ends today. The plot moves between Värmland and its geographical opposite – New Zealand. As a red thread throughout the novel, with all its imaginative events and people, runs Sidner Nordensson’s search for balance between the inevitable sorrow and the healing power of love.
