Passion and Glory

A musical journey of German Baroque music through Lent and Passiontide, leading to the triumph of Easter Day.

Sherborne Chamber Choir
In Echo
Conductor Paul Ellis

Sherborne Chamber Choir is joined by top period band, In Echo, for this programme of early Baroque choral and instrumental music. Pachelbel’s Canon in D may be famous worldwide, but this concert offers a rare chance to hear some of his wonderful choral music, along with music by not one, but two Bachs. With motets, cantatas, instrumental and a cappella music there is something for everyone! The programme includes:

JS Bach Cantata Actus tragicus BWV 106, Motet Komm Jesu komm
Johann Christoph Bach Mit weinen hebt sich’s an
Pachelbel Gott ist unser Zuversicht, Cantata Christ lag in todesbanden

A 7.30pm

Tickets £5-£20 available from Sherborne Tourist Information Centre, 01935 815341, from 5 February.
