The concert program will include works with various instrumental and vocal combinations, including Bach’s Fantasia super: Komm, heiliger Geist and excerpts from a Suite for Solo Cello, as well as chamber music by Johann Jakob Walther, Heinrich Biber, and Daniel Pinkham.

Founded by Woburn-based organist Paul Carlson and Arlington violist Anne Black, Peregrine Consort is made up of highly accomplished Boston-area instrumentalists and singers who have performed with such prominent musical organizations as the Handel and Haydn Society, Boston Baroque, Aston Magna Festival, and Emmanuel Music. Aimed at providing “powerful meditative and musical experiences,” the Consort plans to perform Bach cantatas in a liturgical context at different churches in the Boston area.
