Bach Vespers for Ascension, 22 May

Come and join us for our first Bach Vespers since Easter, on 22 May. The service starts at 6.30pm in the church of St Mary at Hill in the City of London, hosted by St Anne’s Lutheran Church. We will perform Bach’s Cantata BWV 37, ‘Wer da gläubet und getauft wird’. This delightful work celebrates the Feast of the Ascension, and was Bach’s earliest composition for this subject. There will also be other vocal and instrumental music from the German baroque, performed on period instruments. Everyone is welcome (you don’t need to be religious), and admission is free, with a voluntary collection. We look forward to seeing you there and sharing Bach’s wonderful music with you!

Following Bach Vespers: 26 June, with BWV 167.
