For the 500th anniversary of the foundation of the Reformation, the City Bach Collective perform JS Bach’s cantata ‘Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott’, BWV 80 in a special service of Bach Vespers. We will also perform the Motet Lobet den Herrn BWV 230 & the Sinfonia from cantata BWV 42 as well as other baroque music from Bach’s time.
There is more information regarding the 500th anniversary of the Reformation via reformation500.uk – you can also come and see a comprehensive display of information about Martin Luther and the Reformation at the church of St. Mary-at-Hill, where St Anne’s Lutheran Church holds its services.
St Anne’s Lutheran Vespers begin at 6.30pm and last just over an hour. They are free to attend (though you may contribute to a collection during the service). Tea and coffee are available afterwards.
The City Bach Collective greatly appreciate the support and enthusiasm of not only St. Anne’s Church, but also Music-at-Hill and Gibson Dunn in making such special music events available for everyone. If you want to know more about these and other City Bach Collective events as they come up, then you can sign up to our newsletter here.
