Bach at One
The Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Trinity Baroque Orchestra offer a weekly service featuring the music of Johann Sebastian Bach's cantatas. Conducted by Julian Wachner, Trinity's Director of Music and the Arts, these services present Bach's monumental cantata output in a liturgical context, returning these miniature oratorio-like works to their original purpose.
Over the next five years, all of Bach's more than 200 cantatas will be heard at St. Paul's Chapel and Trinity Church. Bach's cycles of vocal-instrumental cantatas on the themes of the seasonal sacred calendar comprise a vast body of peerless music.
Bach at One is free, open to all, and offers a perfect lunch-hour time of reflection and meditation at the beginning of the work week.
