Bach Vespers says
An exuberant Bach Vespers leads into a week of the music of Leipzig and its astounding musicians and composers.

The cantata is "The Hungry Shall Eat", BWV 75, and we're singing a Homilius motet on the same text. Keeping with that theme, we will take an offering as you leave for the Houston Food Bank.

Bach Vespers places the many kinds of church music Johann Sebastian knew in a liturgical context, forming a rich tapestry of chant, motets, hymns, and organ music, all centered around the church cantatas.

Pre-vespers talk 5:15pm by Gregory Barnett
A reception will follow vespers.

Bach Vespers is offered without charge. An offering will be taken to support the series.
