The Orchestra, Choir and Soloists of the Theatre of Early Music
Daniel Taylor, conductor
Ellen McAteer and Agnes Zsigovics, sopranos
Josée Lalonde, alto
Michiel Schrey, tenor
Alexander Dobson and Nathaniel Watson, baritones

A concert dedicated to a tumultuous period in history, the 30 Year War,
featuring five German baroque composers;
Buxtehüde (1637-1707)
JC Bach (1642-1703)
Schmelzer (1623-1680)
Kuhnau (1660-1722)
and Bruhns (1665-1697).

To a suffering people music brought comfort, joy and the spiritual elevation for which they longed.
Though music at this time was the product of profoundly religious belief,
today we can appreciate these masterpieces for their intrinsic beauty,
regardless of our own personal path to faith.
