Bach Vespers, 24 April with City Bach Collective

city bach collectiveLast weekend I was involved in the second of this year’s Bach Vespers performances with the City Bach Collective. We were performing cantata BWV 166 ‘Wo gehest du hin?’, a succinct cantata with standout alto and tenor arias – and a special soprano chorale melody movement suspended over tumbling strings.

In addition we sang music by Sch├╝tz; we’d like to do more of this important predecessor of Bach’s in future. For the time being Bach Vespers continues to be held at St. Mary-at-Hill church in the City.
