Magnificent music to end the season, from the perfection of Bach to the splendour of Zelenka.

The final concert in our anniversary season begins with the burst of exuberance and invention that is Bach’s Magnificat, a timeless musical description of devotion and grace.

High on Bach’s list of favourite composers (an enthusiasm now shared by Tafelmusik audiences) was Jan Dismas Zelenka, a Bohemian immigrant to Saxony. We continue our exploration of Zelenka’s music with our debut performance of his mass Missa Divi Xaverii, a work of miraculous beauty and dazzling joy. Chamber Choir Director Ivars Taurins presides over this very special end to a celebratory season.

Program includes:

  • Johann Sebastian Bach: Magnificat, BWV 243
  • Jan Dismas Zelenka: Missa Divi Xaverii, ZWV 12

Join us for a free pre-concert chat before the show with Tafelmusik choir member Kate Helsen.
