8 PM (lecture at 7 PM) - Bach’s motets are some of the greatest – and most virtuosic – of all Bach’s choral works. They represent Bach both at his exuberant best, in particular, the large double choir works Singet dem Herrn and Der Geist Hilf. The motets also contain some of Bach’s most profound and intense music. As with virtually every other genre that he composed in, Bach brought motet composition to its pinnacle.
