To conclude our season, we offer a rich program of music from Germany, all for double choir. The chorus will be joined by continuo instrumentalists and soloists, and the later unaccompanied choral works will be interspersed with music for cello and piano. Beginning with J.S. Bach's monumental motet, Singet dem Herrn, and ending with the four sublime double choruses by Schumann, this concert provides a spectacular panorama of German choral music from the 16th to the 19th century.
