Magnificat in D major, BWV243
Joanne Lunn - soprano
Conducted by Eric Cross
Three of Bach’s finest vocal works show the range of his music for the Lutheran church. The Magnificat is one of his most popular choral works, with its dramatic choruses and colourful orchestration. The impressive opening chorus of Cantata 110 is better known in its original instrumental version in the Third Orchestral Suite, while Cantata 51 provides a virtuoso showpiece for soprano Joanne Lunn accompanied by one of the world’s leading baroque trumpeters, Crispian Steele-Perkins. Bach’s instrumental music is represented by the splendid Third Brandenburg Concerto. Several of Europe’s leading early music soloists, including tenor Charles Daniels and the North-East debut of Belgian alto Patrick van Goethem, are joined by Newcastle Baroque on period instruments. To help celebrate The Sage Gateshead’s fifth birthday, the Bach Choir are offering seats at great value 2005 prices!
