Experience the masterful choral motets of Johann Sebastian Bach, performed by our octet of professional singers with continuo, and two additional singers for the heart of our program: Jesu, meine Freude. This will be an exciting concert to include works that are rarely performed in our small city!
Programme will include these three motets by J.S. Bach: BVW 230 Lobet den Herrn, BVW 229 Komm, Jesu, komm, and BVW 227 Jesu, meine Freude. Also included will be one motet of Johann Cristoph Bach: Lieber Herr Gott, wekke auf uns. You will be sure to leave feeling inspired by these genius compositions brought to life by the singers of Octet Victoria.
