Dunedin Consort: Battle - Cantatas for the feast of St Michael the Archangel

23 November 2012 at 7:30pm
at The Queen's Hall

Bach: Violin Concerto in E Major BWV 1042
Bach: Cantata 19 'Es erhub sich ein Streit'
Zelenka: Laudate pueri domini
Bach: Cantata 149 'Man singet mit Freuden vom Sieg'

John Butt: Director
James Gilchrist: Tenor

John Butt directs a starry cast in the first of Dunedin Consort's cantata programmes this season exploring the themes of Battle and Love. The feast of St Michael the Archangel celebrates St Michael's defeat of the Dragon, Satan, in the last book of the Bible. This provided a wonderful excuse for Bach to compose some of his most pugnacious, but also joyful, music. Come and experience the thrill of battle without the risk of injury, in the safe environment of The Queen's Hall.
