Early Music Concerts 2012-2013: (US) Bach Society Houston Concert: Bach Vespers: Music from Leipzig (4 Nov 2012)

Contributed by Admin on Nov 02, 2012

Location: 2353 Rice Boulevard, Houston, Texas 77005

“The Bach Vespers series presents complete sacred cantatas along with choral motets and psalm settings in an evening prayer service related to a single theme. This gives them a context similar to their original performance, with chorales and readings chosen to give deeper insight into Bach’s theology. Listeners are also invited to sing and participate as Bach’s congregation did. …”
