Following the devastation of Germany’s 30 Years’ War in the 17th century, the resurgence of music became the focal point of every town and village, a rich lineage that led to the genius of Johann Sebastian Bach. Not to be missed, this program highlights the singular power of music’s solace in times of crisis. Featuring countertenor Reginald Mobley, this program includes works by forgotten German masters Philipp Heinrich Erlebach, Johann Adam Reincken, Clamor Heinrich Abel, as well as J.S. Bach.
Reginald Mobley, countertenor; Elizabeth Blumenstock, Christina Day Martinson, violins; Keats Dieffenbach, Jenny Stirling, violas; Jennifer Morsches, violoncello piccolo, Timothy Merton, cello; Michael Beattie, organ.
Also to be performed Saturday, January 15th at 7:30pm at Harvard-Epworth United Methodist Church, Cambridge MA. (See separate listing)
