Anglistenchor concert commemorating the 332nd birthday of Johann Sebastian Bach

Every year, Heidelberg celebrates Johann Sebastian Bach's birthday on March 21 with a series of concerts and church services honoring the great composer. This year, the Anglistenchor is departing from its usual repertoire to participate in this traditional event, performing a concert of motets scored for double chorus by Bach and other German composers – all in German:

  • Johann Sebastian Bach “Fürchte dich nicht”, “Komm, Jesu, komm”, “Ich lasse dich nicht” Präludien in b-a-c-h-Moll
  • Johann Christoph Bach “Fürchte dich nicht”, “Herr, nun lässest du deinen Diener”
  • F. Mendelssohn Bartholdy ”Die deutsche Liturgie”
  • J. Brahms “Drei Motetten op. 110”
Director Jan Wilke will lead the ensemble, accompanied by organist Clara Hahn and Baroque cellist Thomas Dombrowski, in what is sure to be the crowning event of the day-long celebration in the Heiliggeistkirche.
Anglistenchor concert: “Fürchte Dich Nicht”. March 21, 8:00 p.m. Heiliggeistkirche Heidelberg.
