Baroque in the Summertime features the music of J.S. Bach and his contemporaries. The Missa Brevis in A major is a joyous and sparkling work, extremely sunny in nature although composed for Christmas! Bach knew Pergolesi's expressive Stabat Mater, and even made his own arrangement of it.
Singet dem Herrn ein neues Lied is a glorious two choir setting of psalm 98:
'O sing unto the Lord a new song.'
THE BACH PLAYERS will be led by Nicolette Moonen.
