Bach at One: 12th Night Festival

December 28, 2015

The Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Trinity Baroque Orchestra perform the cantatas of Johann Sebastian Bach each week as part of “Bach at One.” A devout Lutheran, Bach composed 200 cantatas using both sacred and secular texts. Many of those cantatas are heard in churches around the world every Sunday, but through Bach at One, your lunch hour can be enriched by these timeless works. The New York Times has praised the “dramatic vigor” of Bach performances by Trinity artists, not to mention “the buoyant, elegantly shaped orchestral sound” and “the lithe, immaculate and colorful singing of the chorus.”

In the spring of 2016, the Bach at One series will complete the first presentation of Bach’s entire monumental output of sacred vocal music.

This week, as part of Trinity's Twelfth Night: Time's Arrow festival:

J. S. Bach: Toccata in C, BWV 564
J. S. Bach: Cantata BWV 133, Ich freue mich in dir
J. S. Bach: Cantata BWV 7, Christ, unser Herr, zum Jordan kam

The Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Trinity Baroque Orchestra
Soloists: Sarah Brailey, soprano; Timothy Parsons, alto; Brian Giebler, tenor; and Christopher Herbert, bass
Avi Stein, conductor
