On Saturday 11th May 2019 at 8p.m. The Guinness Choir will be in the National Concert Hall, Dublin to perform the Easter Oratorio and the Ascension Oratorio by Johann Sebastian Bach together with his Motet ‘Lobet den Herrn’.
This is a rare opportunity to hear these two brilliant oratorios by Bach as they are rarely performed together. Being on the 11th May, the concert sits comfortably between the celebration of Easter and the Ascension and this programme is very definitely a celebration.
Right from the start you have the brilliance of the orchestral introduction and the crisp articulation of the chorus of the Easter Oratorio. Lobet den Herrn, though the shortest of Bach’s motets, is yet full of energy and invention and suggests almost shouts of joy in the closing Alleluia. The concert is completed with the Ascension Oratorio, giving a deep sense of joy and delight.
This is Bach at his brilliant best!
