Sound the trumpet!

Medium sound the trumpet

Sunday 22 October, 5.00 pm

Saxon Shore Early Music: St Mary’s Church, Kenardington, Kent TN26 2NF

To mark our twentieth anniversary, we present an all-Bach programme: two joyous, well-known cantatas, complemented by two celebrated instrumental works. ‘Weichet nur betrübte Schatten’ is a wedding canata for solo soprano voice; ‘Jauchzet Gott’ gives virtuosic parts to solo soprano and trumpet. The trumpet is featured also in Brandenburg Concerto no. 2. The other concerto in the concert is well known in its version for harpsichord, but is given here in the reconstructed version for oboe d’amore. This will be a special, celebratory event – with extra features to be revealed on the night.
