30 April 2017 - Choral Evensong
This service of Choral Evensong was sung last term on the second Sunday after Easter. It features the second movement from J. S. Bach's Cantata BWV 12, Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen, which he composed in Weimar for Jubilate, the third Sunday after Easter. He led the first performance on 22 April 1714 in the Schlosskirche, the court chapel of the Schloss in Weimar, a picture of which is featured alongside this webcast. He performed it a decade later on the same date as our own performance, 30 April 1724, in his capacity as Tomaskantor in Leipzig.
