King’s Chapel Music Director Heinrich Christensen leads the King’s Chapel Choir, Soloists and Orchestra in Johann Sebastian Bach’s joyful “Magnificat” and the American premiere of a festival cantata by the composer’s second son, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. C.P.E. Bach’s work, recently discovered and edited by the renowned Packard Humanities Institute, celebrates the October 31, 1786 completion of the steeple at St. Michael’s Church in Hamburg. J.S. Bach’s “Magnificat” was first performed in 1733 at Thomaskirche in Leipzig and is a perfect work to perform in the historic and intimate setting of King’s Chapel.
