Lent in Leipzig- Choral Motets by J.S. Bach and Felix Mendelssohn

Lent in Leipzig

Choral Motets by J.S. Bach and Felix Mendelssohn – FREE – Friday, March 22, | 7:30pm

The Schola Cantorum of the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in Richmond (the cathedral’s resident professional choir) presents a program of exquisite motets by two famed Cantors of the Thomaskirche in Leipzig.

Separated by some 125 years, Johann Sebastian Bach and Felix Mendelssohn are paired in this program of sacred, Lenten music, including Bach’s beautifully haunting Jesu, Meine Freude (BWV 227) and Mendelssohn’s Aus Tiefer Not, Ave Maria, Mitten Wir im Leben Sind, and Psalms 22 and 100.

Cathedral Director of Music Daniel Sañez conducts, with Ryan Tibbetts on continuo organ and Benjamin Wyatt on baroque cello.
