Ah, Bach! Johann Sebastian Bach! He is one of the greatest composers who ever lived. In the first session we will explore Bach’s instrumental and keyboard music. We will listen to excerpts from two of his Brandenburg Concertos and Orchestral Suites, the famous Fugue in G minor for organ and much more. Session two will focus on Bach’s Mass in B minor. We will listen to excerpts from this magnificent example of choral music sung by the Bach Choir of Bethlehem under the direction of Greg Funfgeld.
