Sanctus | Oxford Bach Soloists

Sunday, September 1, 2019 - 15:00

A stirring Sanctus in C major, and three cantatas with big statements: BWV 179 preaches against hypocrisy with marvelous directness; BWV 77 illustrates the second of Jesus’ two commandments recounted in the gospel narratives – to ‘love thy neighbour as thyself’ – in a potent musical doctrine foreshadowing Brahms’s German Requiem; and BWV 69a enjoins us to praise the Lord and ‘do not forget what good He has done for you!’ with brilliant trumpet trills and vigorous arpeggios.

Cantata No 179, 'Siehe zu, dass deine Gottesfurcht nicht Heuchelei sei'
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
Cantata No 69, 'Lobe den Herrn, meine Seele'
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
Cantata No 77, 'Du sollt Gott in allen Landen!'
