Ricercar Consort

Time and again, Johann Sebastian Bach used his compositional craft and inventiveness to produce works of astonishing emotional depth. In his church cantatas, for example, he combined Bible verse, free poetry and Lutheran chorales. Collegium Vocale Gent and the Ricercar Consort join forces to transport you to this wondrous world. The highlight is the spectacular Cantate “Jauchzet Gott in allen landen”, BWV 51 (first performed in Leipzig in 1730), in which solo soprano and trumpet sing their praises to God with dizzying virtuosity.
