After the summer break, we are back for Bach Vespers on 24 September. Come and join us at 6.30pm at the church of St Mary at Hill in the City of London. We’ll be performing the splendid cantata BWV 33, Allein zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ, a work bursting with variety of musical colours and textures. The impressive opening choral fantasia, showcasing our superb vocal team and virtuosic oboes, contrasts with more tender moments, such as the alto aria featuring pizzicato strings and muted violin. We will also perform other music from the German baroque for voices and period instruments. The Revd Sarah Farrow, known for her lively sermons, returns to Bach Vespers to lead this service.
Everyone is welcome, so do come along and bring a friend. You don’t need to be religious, you can just come to enjoy the music. Entrance is free (with a voluntary collection). We look forward to seeing you and sharing Bach’s wonderful music.
Next Bach Vespers: 29 October, with BWV 80, Ein feste Burg.
