Bach, Buxtehude & Scarlatti

J.S. BACH  Motet, BWV 225 “Singet dem herrn ein neues Lied”
BUXTEHUDE  Cantate Domino
SCARLATTI  Stabat Mater

J.S. Bach’s jubilant motet, Singet dem Herrn for double choir, plumbs the virtuosity of every singer. We’ll also perform music by Buxtehude, one of Bach’s heroes. His motet Cantate Domino continues the joyful theme, as does Scarlatti’s setting of the Te Deum and his tour-de-force for the chorus, Stabat Mater.
