There are not many places in the world where you can hear a Bach Cantata sung in the context for which they were originally intended, namely in connection with the Service of the Word in the Lutheran Sunday liturgy, but St John’s Lutheran Church in Southgate (Melbourne) is one of them.
And this Sunday, 22 November at 9am, in addition, you will hear it done in the context of a Bach Mass! And all for free!
1) BWV 235 Mass in G minor (one of the 4 Lutheran Masses)
2) BWV 26 Ach wie flüchtig, ach wie nichtig (“Ah! how weary, ah! how fleeting”)
3) …and as a bonus, the Sanctus from BWV 325
St Johns Lutheran Church, Southgate
Nov 22 9am
Maddy’s godfather, David Goedecke, a long time friend of mine, is singing in the choir. We wish them all the best.
