Bach from Tewkesbury Abbey - Part 2

Petroc Trelawny presents the conclusion of an all-Bach performance given by the Magdalena Consort under Peter Harvey. Bach: Lobet der Herrn, alle Heiden, BWV230; Cantata No 147.

Live from Tewkesbury Abbey, Tewkesbury

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

J.S. Bach's cantatas BWV147 "Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben" with its famous chorale "Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring", and the more reflective yet equally glorious "Jesu, der du meine Seele", are testament both to Bach's personal faith and his fascination with the religiously significant number, three. The Magdalena Consort and director and baritone Peter Harvey complete their tribute to Bach's fascination with numbers with the Brandenburg Concerto no 3, scored for three violins, three violas and three cellos and the virtuosic motet "Lobet den Herrn".
