Inspired By Bach

PERFORMANCE DETAILS

VENUE: Knox United Church

SERIES:

Category:

Almost exact contemporaries, there is no evidence that Bach and Handel ever met. But what if they had? Their influence also shines through in the music of Mendelssohn, who was a champion of the Baroque masters. Hear My Prayer encapsulates both of these styles and provides a heartfelt contrast to Handel’s Funeral Anthem. Bach’s rousing opening chorus to Wachet auf provides the finale.
