The Singers’ Favorite!
National Presbyterian Church
The Bach Motets, featuring BWV 225–230
MORE ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
Audiences love to hear any one of Bach’s iconic motets in a live performance, but to hear all of them in one evening is a revelation. Bach’s vocal-ensemble writing is legendary among singers, artfully bringing to life the rhetorical substance of his musical and theological convictions. A valuable part of Bach’s oeuvre, the motets together capture the full range of connection between text, music, and faith.
