    Guernsey Bach Choir and Orchestra concert

    8:00

    St James Concert Hall

    Vivaldi: Kyrie Eleison

    JS Bach: Sinfonia from Cantata BWV 174 , Cantata BWV Wachet auf “Sleepers Wake”

    Mozart: Great Mass in C Minor

    Kyrie Eleison shows Vivaldi at his best in this short work written for double chorus and double string orchestra. The two works by J S Bach are the Sinfonia from Cantata 174, which is a re-scored version of the first movement of Brandenburg No. 3 with added horns and oboes and the fabulous Advent Cantata 140 “Wachet auf”, also known as “Sleepers Wake”. The ‘Great’ Mass in C minor is one of Mozart’s beautiful masterpieces. Full of drama and exquisite melody writing for soloists and chorus.

    Formed in 2007 The Guernsey Bach Choir has performed a large repertoire of choral music and is now a well-established vocal ensemble with a growing reputation for high standard performances. Tonight, they come together with their orchestral friends to perform these great Choral masterpieces.
