St. Mark's has a free parking lot adjacent to the church but I took the #38 Geary to Gough and walked a block and a half to the church.

This was a lovely event, with rarely heard pre-Bach cantatas expertly played, accompanied by two very talented singers, a bass and a soprano, whose duet at the end was especially moving.

Description

Passionate cantatas from 17th-century Germany

This joint production by Catacoustic Consort and Wildcat Viols presents luscious 17th-century German cantatas for solo voices, viols and continuo. Two of the brightest emerging singers on the early music stage, soprano Youngmi Kim and baritone Mischa Bouvier, deliver emotionally expressive works by Franz Tunder, Matthias Weckmann, Christoph Bernhard and others, heard in the churches of Germany before Bach.
