Bach Society Houston presents A Festival of Motets
The Moseley Memorial Music Series at St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church is hosting Bach Society Houston’s Bach Choir in A Festival of Motets, a preview of Bach Choir’s summer performance in Germany. The program will feature music of Johann Sebastian Bach, Felix Mendelssohn, Charles Ives, Aaron Copland, and more.
In Bach’s day, motets were intimate, virtuosic pieces for choir that showed off the ranges and abilities of the singers. Bach Choir Houston will perform at the world’s largest Bach Festival in Leipzig, Germany, in late June. Come hear the exquisite motets they will be performing in the spaces where Bach lived and worked.
