with the American Bach Choir

Three of the compositions on this program call upon especially heraldic trumpet ensembles. Bach’s Magnificat, one of the most well-known and popular among his liturgical works, is like a delicious smorgasbord of sweet and savory vocal delights, and Tönet, ihr Pauken! Erschallet, Trompeten! (“Sound, you drums! Ring forth, trumpets!”) is a grand secular cantata featuring music that eventually became part of the “Christmas Oratorio.” Bach’s virtuoso Orchestral Suite No. 2 in B Minor will feature flutist Sandra Miller, whose playing is noted for its “mellow, quietly penetrating tone” (The New York Times). The program closes with one of Bach’s most extraordinarily impressive cantatas, Herr Gott, dich loben alle wir, a fantastically extroverted work composed for Leipzig’s lavish celebrations of the Feast of St. Michael and All Angels in 1724. Bringing back a hallmark of ABS’s cantata performances over the years, the audience will be invited to sing along on the final chorale.

These performances are generously sponsored in part by Patricia & George Locke.
