The Bach Dynasty

Johann Sebastian Bach was just one member of a richly talented family of musicians. In fact, in some circles, the name Bach was synonymous with 'musician'! This show introduces some other members of the Bach family, with music from a recent release by Vox Luminis. Artistic Director Lionel Meunier also shares his insights in an interview in this program.

Heinrich Bach: Ich danke dir, Gott; Vox Luminis

Johann Christoph Bach: Herr, wende dich und sei mir gnädig; Vox Luminis

Johann Michael Bach: Herr, der König freuet sich; Vox Luminis

Johann Sebastian Bach: Christ lag in Todesbanden; Vox Luminis

Dieterich Buxtehude: Jesu, meines Lebens Leben; Vox Luminis & Ensemble Masques

Johann Christoph Bach: Es erhub sich ein Streit; Vox Luminis
