March 21 marks the 330th birthday of Johann Sebastian Bach. Weâ€™ll take a brief break from Lent to celebrate with lots of wonderful choral and organ music, and trace some transcriptions that Bach himself made from genre to genre. Join Peter DuBois for the musical party!
The Fourth Sunday in Lent is often celebrated as â€śLaetareâ€ť Sunday, from the opening words of the Latin introit for the day. â€śLaetareâ€ť means â€śrejoice,â€ť and music for this day will provide a brief respite from Lenten introspection and reflection.
The texts in the Book of Psalms span the whole of human experience, and during the Lenten season we focus particularly on those of lament, reflection and comfort. Join Peter DuBois for this survey of choral and organ music related to those texts.
Choral and organ music helps set the tone of introspection that is one of the hallmarks of the Lenten season. On this edition of With Heart and Voice, Peter DuBois will share pieces from a variety of musical and textual sources that help us on the journey.
