Aureas Voces presents a concert as part of the Cathedral of All Saints’ “Sundays at Four” series, featuring an adaptation of the German Organ Mass by J.S. Bach. The intricate organ works from the German Organ Mass or Clavier-Übung III will be coupled with appropriate chorales and excerpts from cantatas.
Nick Veltmeyer will perform as organist, alongside a chamber choir accompanied by Hilary Brown on cello. The programme will also feature local favourite soprano Janelle Lucyk.
The title page for the German Organ Mass in translation reads : “Prepared for music-lovers and particularly for connoisseurs of such work, for the recreation of the spirit, by Johann Sebastian Bach, Royal Polish and Electoral Saxon Court Composer, Capellmeister and director of the chorus musicus, Leipzig. Published by the author”.
