A BIT OF BACH DOES US THE POWER OF GOOD
The other Sunday I hopped and skipped along to the Royal Academy of Music and enjoyed the most wonderful concert.
Bonza conductor of the Baroque, Philippe Herreweghe led a spirited group of musicians from the Academy and we enjoyed several cantatas.
I am so very late coming to this lovely music and have much catching up to do.
The cantatas of Johann Sebastian Bach (Bachkantaten) consist of at least 209 surviving works most of which were written during his time in Leizig.
Search for Bach on the BBC Radio 3 iPlayer and you will find lots of goodies.
