CLASSICAL CONCERT | Cantatas de Bach | Bairro Alto | FREE
April 7, 2019 @ 17:00 - 19:00Free
“The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul.”
Johann Sebastian Bach.
It’s clear that, among many other things, Johann was a man of god. Which is why he made a lot of church music. And which is also why this — you guessed it — Sunday, the Portuguese Academic Orchestra (OAP), with some help from the Organum Vocale choir, present the Bach Cantatas in the Church of Santa Catarina.
Come refresh your soul; all are welcome, including atheists.
Christ lag in Todes Banden (BWV4).
Nach dir, Herr, mich verlanget (BWV150).
Beatriz Ventura – Soprano.
Maria João Abreu – Contralto.
Guilherme Oliveira – Tenor.
John Fonseca e Costa – Baritone.
