Dec 8, 2019

On Sunday, December 8, 2019 the Unity Temple Choir, soloists and the Bach Baroque Chamber Orchestra presented the Bach Magnificat in D major. This, one of J.S Bach's most performed works, features five soloists and a five part chorus, beginning and ending with exciting and challenging choral movements.

Bach, a master in setting Biblical texts, has crafted a work that shows wonderful attention to the meaning of Mary's Song of Praise (Luke I: 46-55), amplified by the various moods, textures and orchestral colors that engage the listener as Mary exults in being blessed to be the Mother of the Messiah.

In order to maintain the format of the worship service, three musical movements are not included in this performance.
