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. This will be a special, celebratory event – with extra features to be revealed on the night.
