Bach at One

March 11, 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 Wednesday 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.”

This Week:
Buxtehude – Prelude in D Minor, BuxWV 140
BWV 162 Ach! ich sehe, itzt, da ich zur Hochzeit gehe
BWV 165 O heilges Geist– und Wasserbad
BWV 185 Barmherziges Herze der ewigen Liebe
Trinity Baroque Orchestra; The Choir of Trinity Wall Street, David Arrivée, guest conductor
