Easter Weekend: The Lord is my Shepherd
Monday 13 April, 3:00 pm - 4:15 pmFree – £25.00
Du Hirte Israel, höre (You Shepherd of Israel, hear), BWV 104
Wo gehest du hin? (Where are you going?), BWV 166
Wer da gläubet und getauft wird (He who believes and is baptised), BWV 37
Described as ‘one of the truly perfect cantatas, flawless in every detail’, Cantata 104 draws its inspiration from Psalm 23 ‘The Lord is my Shepherd’. Full of leisurely melodies and flourishes, it finds refreshment, green pastures and a foretaste of heaven. As we move towards Christ’s Ascension and departure from the earth, Cantata 166 is in a rather uncertain vein asking the question ‘Where are you going?’ yet Bach’s music is always full of hope. Clearing the skies to joy and laughter, this concert ends with Cantata 37 depicting the soul winging heavenward.
