2023 brings an opportunity to celebrate one of the greatest events in musical history, J.S. Bach’s appointment as Thomaskantor in Leipzig. For the next 27 years, Bach produced music of staggering beauty, complexity and profundity. To celebrate this momentous event, three of his most celebrated Leipzig cantatas and his jubilant motet ‘Singet dem Herrn’ have been selected.

How can the works of Bach ever be adequately summed up? International patron Sir John Eliot Gardiner describes ‘But it is Bach, making music in the Castle of Heaven, who gives us the voice of God – in human form. He is the one who blazes a trail, showing us how to overcome our imperfections through the perfections of his music: to make divine things human and human things divine.’
