The 25th season celebration for the American Bach Soloists rolls on with a look at Bach's legacy, as Maestro Jeffrey Thomas leads the ABS and choir through several of the composer's motets and choral pieces, along with vocal works by those he influenced, like Mendelssohn, Brahms, Sandström and Nystedt. In fact, contemporary Norwegian composer Knut Nystedt's Immortal Bach is wholly inspired by Bach's sacred song "Komm, süßer Tod, komm, selge Ruh (Come, sweet death, come, blessed rest)," transforming it into a complex and challenging new setting. Though Bach completed well over 300 cantatas over the course of his productive career, he only created six motets. This performance also includes two of these powerful pieces, along with his early cantata, "Out of the depths I call to thee." Gain more insight into the program at the pre-concert lecture, which begins one hour before the performance. Learn More

Musae presents its seventh annual holiday concert. Nativities celebrates the image of mother and child with Musae’s return to some of the most treasured pieces in the women’s choral repertoire and new explorations of the mysteries of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Revel in the Romantic sonorities of settings of “Ave Maria” by Holst and Fauré, as well as Duruflé’s “Tota Pulchra Es,” the plaintive sounds of voices with a quartet of viols, and the otherworldly mystery of chant and polyphony. Savor the comforting warmth of lullabies old and new by Dvořák and Whitacre, a jazzy “Rock-a-bye Baby,” and the classic “Baby Mine.” And feel the festive spirit of the season as the concert closes with vocal jazz tunes and new arrangements of holiday favorites, “O Holy Night” and “Auld Lang Syne.”
