Himmelskönig: Bach Cantatas for Lent

Tuesday 15th March 2016, St John’s Church Southdown, Harpenden AL5 1DJ, 7.30pm

March 15th 2016Amici Voices’ exploration of Bach’s sacred repertory in their one-voice-per-part formation continues with a concert of Lenten Cantatas. On Tuesday March 15th 2016, they will perform three cantatas: BWV 106, 161 and 182, which are amongst only a handful of surviving Bach vocal works written or suitable for Lent. Once again, Amici Voices will be joined by Amici Baroque Players, who include some of the finest players in their field. The relatively small number of performers (with one player and singer per part) enables the wonderful detail of the music, especially the counterpoint, and the unusual instrumentation, to be better heard and appreciated. The three cantatas occupy a similar emotional and expressive terrain to the Passion settings, exploring the human response to Christ’s suffering, forgiveness and love.
