The Choir of Men and Boys presents a concert of sacred German music from the Baroque period for Palm Sunday. This consists of two works: Bach's Palm Sunday cantata no. 182 "Himmelskönig, sei willkommen" and three of the seven parts of Buxtehude's Membra Jesu nostri. These are two very different kinds of works that together promise to make a wonderful short afternoon of musical reflection. The Bach in particular has some very fine arias for solo voices, even a tenor that you may find familiar.
Do come out to support the hard work of our choir, especially the boys who have been working with and inspiring degree of dedication and fine musicianship all this year long. The concert is free of admission charge, but of course a donation is always welcome to support the music programme and the work of the Cathedral church at large in the community.
