C.P.E. Bach: Die letzten Leiden des Erlösers
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
The Saint Thomas Choir of Men and Boys are joined once again by New York Baroque Incorporated for the wonderful and under-performed ‘stile galant’ oratorio by J. S. Bach’s illustrious son, C. P. E. Bach. Die letzten Leiden des Erlösers (The Last Sufferings of Christ) was first performed in 1770, and until 1785 was performed in Bach’s native Hamburg every year. Contemplative and dramatic by turns, this refined music offers a beautiful introduction to the spirituality of the season.
Venue: Saint Thomas Church Fifth Avenue
1 West 53rd St.
