Genealogy of a Genius - Bach family motets

Orlando Chamber Choir
Oliver John Ruthven, organ
Lucy Goddard, director

Johann Michael Bach: Herr, wenn ich nur dich habe
Johann Michael Bach: Halt, was du hast
Johann Sebastian Bach: Komm, Jesu, komm
Johann Sebastian Bach: Ich lasse dich nicht
Johann Ludwig Bach: Das ist meine Freude
Johann Christoph Bach: Lieber Herr Gott, wecke uns auf
Johann Christoph Bach: Herr, nun laessest du deinen Diener
Johann Christoph Bach: Der Gerechte
Johann Christoph Bach: Fuerchte dich nicht
Johann Christoph Bach: Es ist nun aus mit deinem Leben
Knut Nystedt: Immortal Bach

Orlando Chamber Choir invites you to an evening of copious counterpoint by Johann Sebastian Bach, his ancestors and their descendants. We reel you into the repertoire with "the" Bach's moving masterpiece "Komm, Jesu, komm" - but no sooner have you settled in your seat than we sing you off it with the double-choir jubilation of "Das ist meine Freude" by Bach's third cousin Johann Ludwig. Further down the family tree we find Johann Michael, Bach's father-in-law and uncle to his first wife. He intricately interweaves his motets' melodies to set hymns and Psalm texts simultaneously, creating a contemplative discourse between heavenly and earthly voices. Johann Michael's brother Johann Christoph contributes more intimately crafted compositions with madrigalian musicality and word-painting aplenty. We leave you with the hope and comfort of Bach's "Ich lasse dich nicht" which, true to its title, once heard stays with you forever. Come and marvel at the masterful motets of this phenomenal family!
