Mein Freund ist Mein: Cantatas by the Bach family - Sestina - East Cork Early Music Festival

  • CIT Cork School of Music Cork (map)

Dynamic young ensemble Sestina explore themes of life and death through works of breathtaking power and humanity by JS Bach and his contemporaries..

J.S. Bach – Sarabande and Chaconne (with choral interpolations)
J.S. Bach  – Cantata No. 4 Christ lagin Todes Banden
J.C. Bach –  Es ist nun aus  (Sterb Aria) 
J.C. Bach  – Meine Freundin du bistschön.

Sestina, a group fast developing a reputation for classy, intelligent programming of Baroque music, idiomatically sung and expertly accompanied on instruments of the period.
