Music at Westwood to Perform the “Forgotten” Bach Cantata
Join us as the WPC Master Choir, Westwood Chamber Ensemble and vocal soloists present the Bach Cantata “A Child” (BVW 142) during services at 8:50 and 11:10am, under the direction of Maria Newman. This cantata is one of three works that Bach wrote for Christmas, and uses the biblical text “For unto us a Child is born” from Isaiah 9:6-7. Some refer to this Bach work as “the Forgotten Cantata” since it is much less frequently performed.
Maria Newman reflects, “This cantata has already become a favorite of the choir, and we are certain that the opportunity to hear Bach’s magnificent music in the setting of our beautiful Gothic sanctuary will thrill the listeners and contribute to their enjoyment of the Christmas season.” See you next Sunday as we continue through the Advent season.
