The cantatas are among Bach’s most significant works. The two on this program, for Pentecost and for Trinity, are from his Leipzig period at the Thomaskirche when he wrote a different cantata for each Sunday of the liturgical year. Andrew Megill, Director of Choral Activities, leads the Allerton Bach choir, orchestra, and soloists.


O ewiges Feuer, o Ursprung der Liebe, BWV 34
Herr, gehe nicht ins Gericht, BWV 105
