Bach Motets: Singet dem Herrn
Sunday 11 December, 8:30 pm - 9:45 pm
Bach’s motets constitute the most perfect and gem-like set amongst his works. They lay at the heart of his work as a teacher and choir-trainer, and grew out of a genre which the Bach family had cultivated for generations. This was the repertory that all his pupils were expected to sing and to master.
