Prom 25
  Performance Date:     Seat Amount:    
In 2000 Sir John Eliot Gardiner, the Monteverdi Choir and the English Baroque Soloists performed all of Bach's surviving church cantatas in an unprecedented year-long musical pilgrimage.
They return to these astonishing musical statements of faith, continuing our series of concerts marking the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.

Hear two of Bach's Lutheran cantatas - including Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott, itself composed for a Reformation anniversary celebration - alongside psalm-settings by his German musical forebear Heinrich Schutz, alive with dance rhythms and vivid instrumental textures.

Schutz

Nun lob, mein Seel, den Herren, SWV 41 8'
Nicht uns, Herr, sondern deinem Namen, SWV 43 6'
Danket dem Herren, denn er ist freundlich, SWV 45 7'
J. S. Bach
