WE REGRET THIS CONCERT HAS BEEN CANCELLED IN LINE WITH GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES – FUTURE EVENTS WILL CONTINUE AS ADVERTISED

Anniversary Concert – JS BACH Jesu, meine Freude; JS BACH Prelude and Fugue in E minor (BWV 548); Bob CHILCOTT St John Passion;

Our Spring concert will be a performance of JS Bach’s Jesu, meine Freude, BWV 227 the longest and most musically complex of Bach’s six motets, and Bob Chilcott’s St John Passion, setting words from St John’s Gospel in a dramatic retelling of the Passiontide story.  The programme will also include JS Bach’s Prelude and Fugue in E minor BWV 548 featuring Colin Druce on the organ.

Chilcott’s work combines 13th- and 17th-century English poetry with texts from the King James Bible and, as with Bach’s great Passion settings, the role of the Evangelist is taken by the tenor soloist. By including five well-known hymn texts set to new, original melodies, the work further confirms Chilcott’s status as one of the world’s most popular active choral composers.
