Johann Michael Bach: Herr, ich warte auf dein Heil; Sei, lieber Tag wilkommen; Nun treten wir ins neue Jahr; Halt, was du hast

Johann Ludwig Bach: Das Blut Jesu Christi; Das ist meine Freude
Johann Sebastian Bach: Jesu Meine Freude BWV 227

Lionel Meunier and his ensemble Vox Luminis will turn their attention to the wealth of motet creativity of the Bach family. This family tree, one of the most significant dynasties of musicians who would consistently produce musical highlights in Middle Germany over generations, had many far-reaching branches. Johann Sebastian, today the most famous scion, was proud of the musical heritage of his ancestors. He continued the collecting activities started by his father and preserved for us valuable witnesses to the works of his family members, which are remarkable for their emotional depth and compositional sophistication. While Lionel Meunier and his ensemble will take their places in the altar area for the first part of the concert, they will move to the gallery and be joined in their music-making by the large Schnitger organ in the second part. With their perfect diction, fine balance of voices and a radiant, homogeneous overall sound, they create a deeply moving tangible experience proving that Johann Sebastian had tremendous role models of great stature in his family!
