40th anniversary season 2016-17

Bach Motets

and other inspirational works from the German Baroque

 

 

We are delighted to present a programme showcasing five of Bach's six Leipzig motets, considered by many to be the greatest achievement of choral polyphony of the Baroque era.

 

As with so much of Bach's choral writing, he makes virtuosic demands of all parts, often writing music that would not look out of place on the stand of a first desk violin! We supplement our programme with some less well-known, but nonetheless beautiful, motets by other masters of the period.

 

We look forward to welcoming you to this lovely church and its rich acoustic, for an evening of inspirational choral music from the German baroque.
