Come and join us on 26 November, when we perform Bach’s rarely heard cantata BWV 116, Du Friedefürst, Herr Jesu Christ. The service takes place at 6.30pm at the church of St Mary-at-Hill in the City of London. This expressive cantata, on the theme of help in distress, features oboe d’amores, as well as an unusual vocal terzetto. In the opening chorale fantasia voices and instruments interweave in a concerto grosso texture. Our team of voices and period instrumentalists will also perform other music of the German Baroque.

Everyone is welcome. You don’t need to be religious and entrance is free (with a voluntary collection). We look forward to sharing Bach’s wonderful music with you.
