We are well underway preparing our next concert program, Music of the Bach Family, to be performed in conjunction with the Whittier College Bach Festival.

Lobet den Herrn (J.S. Bach)
Ich danke dir, Gott (Heinrich Bach)
Sei nun wieder zufrieden (Johann Bach)
Es erhub sich ein Streit

Singet dem Herrn  (J.S. Bach)

Singers will be accompanied by organ and chamber orchestra.  Some pieces will be performed with the singers surrounding the audience. Cantori Sine Nomine, an ensemble of the Chorale, will perform the opening motet.  A quintet of CBC singers will perform the solos in Ich danke dir, Gott, and we'll finish with J.S. Bach's monumental motet for double chorus, Singet dem Herrn.
