About This Event

Performing with small forces and without a conductor, Baroque-music collective Solomon’s Knot brings a contemporary clarity and freshness to all its performances.

The ensembles makes its Proms debut with an all-Bach Late Night Prom of cantatas composed for the Feast of St Michael – the saint who, appropriately, protects against the evils of darkness and night.

The programme includes the richly scored cantatas Herr Gott, dich loben alle wir and Es erhub sich ein Streit, as well as the dramatic Man singet mit Freuden vom Sieg, with its glorious chorale finale.

There will be no interval

Approx. end time: 23:30
