Bach at One

November 19, 2014

The Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Trinity Baroque Orchestra perform the cantatas of Johann Sebastian Bach each week as part of “Bach at One.” A devout Lutheran, Bach composed 200 cantatas using both sacred and secular texts. Many of those cantatas are heard in churches around the world every Sunday, but through Bach at One, your Wednesday lunch hour can be enriched by these timeless works. The New York Times has praised the “dramatic vigor” of Bach performances by Trinity artists, not to mention “the buoyant, elegantly shaped orchestral sound” and “the lithe, immaculate and colorful singing of the chorus.”

This week:

Bach – Prelude and Fugue in C Major, BWV 545
BWV 77 Du sollt Gott, deinen Herren, lieben
BWV 86 Wahrlich, wahrlich, ich sage euch
BWV 98 Was Gott tut, das ist wohlgetan
Trinity Baroque Orchestra; The Choir of Trinity Wall Street
Julian Wachner, conductor
