Through the Bach+ Cantata Vespers, engage with the smaller settings of the sacred music of J.S. Bach and others in the beauty of St. Anne’s church. This series of cantatas is designed to correspond to the season and occasion for which the works were composed. Some are presented as part of a short evening worship service at St. Anne’s in much the same way that Bach’s congregation would have experienced them, while others are stand-alone events. All performances are at St. Anne’s Episcopal Church.
