Bach’s vocal music scrutinised
Oratorios, cantatas, arias, Masses: almost half of Johann Sebastian Bach’s compositions are vocal works. Not a note too many, every voice equally interesting: that’s what makes Bach's music so unique. August De Groote scrutinises Bach’s magnificent vocal oeuvre, focussing in particular on Bach's masterly Magnificat. In this commemorative year for the Reformation, he also considers the influence of Lutheran chorales on Bach's work.
