Bach at One

St. Paul’s Chapel

Having performed the entire sacred output of Johann Sebastian Bach, Trinity’s Bach at One series returns this spring on Mondays with works from Bach's canon and those of his contemporaries.  The New York Times has praised the “dramatic vigor” of Bach performances by Trinity artists, not to mention “the buoyant, elegantly shaped orchestral sound” and “the lithe, immaculate and colorful singing of the chorus.”  This season welcomes the addition of a marvelous new organ to Saint Paul’s Chapel by pairing favorite cantatas with the magnificent organ Preludes, Fugues and Leipzig Chorales.

Program: 

Aus der Tiefen rufe ich, Herr, zu dir, BWV 131
The Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Trinity Baroque Orchestra; Julian Wachner, conductor
