On Sunday 7 May we are returning to the Dutch Church in the City of London to perform Bach’s famous cantata BWV 80 Ein feste Burg. The event features organ music by Bach on the wonderful Dutch Church organ performed by the organist David Titterington, and the economist Willem Buiter gives a talk just prior to our cantata performance.
Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott is the title of the most famous of the hymn melodies composed by the founding figure of the Reformation movement, Martin Luther. This year is the 500th anniversary of Luther posting his 95 theses to the church door in Witternburg, the defining act of the Reformation. This cantata is consequently a featured event on the Lutheran Council of Great Britain’s Reformation 500 site.
The event, at 3pm on Sunday 8 January 2017 is free to attend (there’s a collection to which you can contribute) and lasts around an hour. More via the Dutch Church website at dutchchurch.org.uk.
