Jesu Meine Freude.

I sang in this at the last Bach Choral Course in St. Andrews in 2019. The Southend Bach Choir will be singing it next term. It's yet another masterpiece amongst so many.

Thanks WoW. That's a great performance and what lovely acoustics in the Grote Kerk.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

The A minor violin concerto. This is a sublime performance.

I've been learning an arrangement of the first movement for alto recorder, by James Howard Young. It's pretty faithful to the original, but the music occasionally rises where the vioin part falls as the recorder's range isn's as great as the violin's. It's surprisingly approachable for a duffer like me.

Bump. We are really getting to grips with this. Concert on 13th May. We are also singing the Beethoven Mass in C major.

Wim Kok has just replied to a comment of mine on the Johann Sebastian Bach thread on Facebook. I suspect it's probably someone other than the former PM of the Netherlands, who died in 2018.
