I suppose this would be a good place to publicise this: next Sunday, 29 March, at 7.00 pm, the Senior Choir at Chapel of the Cross, accompanied by chamber orchestra, will be presenting a Solemn Evensong featuring Cantata 131, Aus der Tiefe.
Featured works include:
- Johann Sebastian Bach: Cantata 131, Aus der Tiefe (Bach’s earliest cantata?)
- Orlando Gibbons: Magnificat and Nunc dimittis (“Short Service”)
- William Byrd: Miserere mei
- Johann Sebastian Bach: Aus tiefer Not (Klavierübung, III)
The Chapel of the Cross is located beside the Morehead Planetarium at UNC Chapel Hill. For further information, call 919-929-2193 or email Van Quinn.
Because of my position with St Joseph's, I no longer sing with the Senior Choir; however, you can bet that I'll be there to listen and to silently cheer my fellow choristers as they present this wonderful evening of music.
A very happy birthday indeed to Mr Bach.
How are you celebrating Bach's birthday?
