April 23 Bach Vespers

April 23
Bleib bei uns, den es will Abend warden, BWV 6
Stay with us, for evening falls

This Bach Vespers will be held at Christ Church Cathedral, Cincinnati.

In what has become a regular tradition, the choirs of St. Thomas and Christ Church Cathedral join forces in a celebration of music. Retelling the story of the story of the Road to Emmaus from Luke in two ways: Bach baroque cantata written for Easter Monday in 1725, and late-American composer Moses Hogan’s spiritually influenced hymn. The prelude will feature music for organ performed on the new Richards, Fowkes & Co. instrument, and the postlude will be Bach’s full Orchestral Suite No. 3. Reception to follow.
