The Orchestra of the Age Enlightenment, an Associate Artist at this year's Spitalfields Festival, open their concert with works by Praetorius and Schütz, two of 17th-century Germany's most significant musical personalities. In this concert music resounds from all corners of Christ Church Spitalfields in expressive, overlapping multi-choir harmonies. The audience will also be part of the music, performing chorales with the musicians as would have happened in the Lutheran church.
