Out of the Depths

Sunday 16 July 2017, 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm

Free – $15
Oxford Bach Soloists

The powerful text Aus der Tiefe rufe ich, Herr, zu dir (Out of the depths have I cried unto thee) was the perfect choice of text for JS Bach to set to music following the colossal fire which swept through the medieval town of Mülhausen just before his appointment as the new organist.

This concert explores several fascinating and moving responses to this text through the compositions of one of the fathers of the German Baroque, Heinrich Schütz, as well as French and English contemporaries Marc-Antoine Charpentier and Henry Purcell. 

Schütz Aus der Tiefe rufe ich, Herr, zu dir, SWV 25
Purcell Remember not, Lord, our offences, Z 50
Charpentier De profundis, H. 189
CPE Bach Aus der Tiefe rufe ich, Herr, zu dir (formerly attributed to JS Bach BWV 745)
JS Bach Aus der Tiefe rufe ich, Herr, zu dir, BWV 131
