What's on at VCA and MCM

Vespers (Ascension of Our Lord)

25 May 2017, 7:30pm - 9:00pm

Stephen Grant director, David Irving leader

The MCM Early Voices and Baroque Orchestra ensembles perform BACH's Christ lag in Todes Banden (BWV 4) for Vespers at St Johns, Southgate.

In its Bach Cantata Program, St Johns Southgate presents an ongoing series of services incorporating the choral music of J.S. Bach. The cantatas are presented in their intended context, liturgical Lutheran church services. The services include congregational liturgy and chorales, and organ music on the 1992 Knud Smenge pipe organ. The program was founded in 1997 and 2016 is its 19th liturgical year. The series has presented over 110 different cantatas and most of Bach’s major choral works in over 160 events. This event features the students and staff of the MCM's Early Music Studio, directed by David Irving and Erin Helyard.

Admission:  Free, no bookings required.

Venue: St John's Southgate, 20 City Road, Southbank, 3006
