In the final presentation of The Boston Cecilia’s 144th season, we trace the compositional lineage of the German master composers: Heinrich Schütz, Johann Sebastian Bach, Felix Mendelssohn, and Johannes Brahms. Heinrich Schütz laid the groundwork for these composers and we trace his legacy throughout the golden ages of German music in a concert featuring Bach’s motets Jesu, meine Freude and Komm Jesu, Komm and Brahms’ Fest- und Gedenksprüche.
