A Bach Christmas

December 8, 2022 7:30 pm (6:30 pm Lecture)

A Bach Christmas
Choir of St. Luke in the Fields
with Baroque in the Fields period instrument ensemble 

For much of his life Johann Sebastian Bach worked as a church composer, writing music to accompany services through the year. The joy of the Christmas season inspired some of his most brilliant and festive compositions. The concert will include three cantatas: Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland, BWV 62, for Advent, Darzu ist erschienen der Sohn Gottes, BWV 40, and Gloria in excelsis Deo, BWV 191, composed in 1745. Three years later, Bach adapted much of the music from this cantata for the Gloria section of his monumental Mass in B Minor.

The Golden Age of Portuguese Music

March 2, 2023 7:30 pm (6:30 pm Lecture)

The Golden Age of Portuguese Music
Choir of St. Luke in the Fields

By the 17th century, the transition to the Baroque style was well underway. Portuguese Renaissance composers, however, were not quick to change with the times. Rather than adopting Baroque writing techniques, they incorporated new harmonic flavors from the emerging Baroque movement into the Renaissance style, yielding some of the most exotic sounding music of the era. The concert will feature Manuel Cardoso’s sublime Requiem along with motets by Cardoso, Duarte Lobo and Vicente Lusitano, the first published Black composer.
