Featured works on the program are:
Heinrich Schütz (1585-1672): Cantate Domino, SWV 81
Christoph Graupner (1683-1760): Cantata: “Also hat Gott die Welt geliebet”
J.S. Bach (1685-1750): Cantata #78: “Jesu, der du meine Seele”
J.S. Bach: Cantata #192: “Nun danket alle Gott”
I will be singing in this performance as will fellow-NW Reverber Lorin Wilkerson.
BTW: Today at our dress rehearsal, Ralph Nelson asked the choir to sing the Graupner with a lighter voice, and said something like "the Graupner sounds too heavy!" One my tenor colleagues, Josh Kadish, whispered to me "He ain't, he's my Graupner."
