ROOTS & BRANCHES: The Bach Family Tree

ROOTS & BRANCHES: The Bach Family Tree

Friday, 24 March 2023, 8.00pm

Although we often place Johann Sebastian Bach at the pinnacle of the Bach musical family tree, he inherited a long line of musical tradition that spanned back to the early 17th century. In this concert, three of Limerick’s finest vocal ensembles — Ancór, Sagittarius Hiberniensis, and St Mary’s Cathedral Choir — combine forces onstage to present several works of this admirable lineage. They are joined by LEMF’s Festival Orchestra and led by Cecilia Madden and Peter Barley. These ensembles will present cantatas by JS Bach intertwined with sonorous motets by several of his forebears, including Johann (the “Erfurt”) Bach, Johann Christoph, and Johann Michael Bach.
