The King's Singers
English Touring Opera Concert
Soloists from English Touring Opera and period players from the Old Street Band join forces with Rochester Cathedral Choir for this special concert of Bach's Advent Cantatas.
Since Advent was observed as quiet time in Lutheran Germany, Bach composed a small number of extraordinary cantatas for the four Sundays preceding Christmas. This concert includes contrasting and powerful settings of Martin Luther's great chorale ‘Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland’, the joyful ‘Herz und Munt und Tat und Leben’ (‘Heart, mouth, deed and life’) and the melancholy 'Ärgre dich, O Seele, nicht'.
