Johann Sebastian Bach

Motet: Der Gerechte kommt um

Johann Sebastian Bach

Brandenburg Concerto VI, BWV 1051

Heinrich Schütz

Musikalische Exequien, SWV 279

Johann Sebastian Bach

Funeral Ode: Laß, Fürstin, laß noch einen Strahl, BWV 198

Rich sonority, sublime harmony, and complex instrumentation characterize this program that includes a deeply-felt funeral ode written to honor a beloved queen, and Schütz’s Exequien, a tribute to a friend and patron and one of the major works of the German choral repertoire before Bach. Bach himself looks back to the past with his arrangement of a motet originally attributed to his colleague Kuhnau, and the mood of reflection is carried over in the most introspective and somberly beautiful of the Brandenburg concertos.
