Bach Weekend/Motets

16 June 2018 / 15:00
St Giles' Cripplegate

Discover another Bach. An afternoon of sacred motets by Johann Sebastian and his cousin Johann Cristoph, at St Giles Cripplegate.

No genius exists in isolation, and Johann Sebastian Bach himself praised his cousin Johann Christoph as “the profound composer”. This fascinating programme by the baroque collective Solomon’s Knot puts their music side by side, to revelatory effect.

It’s a typically intriguing idea from a group that, as the Financial Times puts it, is “known as much for vigour and risk-taking as for historical authenticity and intelligent programming". And in the atmospheric surroundings of St Giles Cripplegate, this sacred choral music – whether familiar or unfamiliar – will sound both wonderfully vivid and perfectly at home.
