Music of J. S. Bach again fills the Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus at Concordia Seminary in Clayton, Sunday, February 13, 3:00 p.m. for the public of the St. Louis region without charge. Organist Dennis Bergin performs Bach’s transcriptions of concerti by his contemporaries: Antonio Vivaldi, Concerto in C Major, Allegro; Concerti in A Minor and D Minor; and Johann Ernst, G Major. The American Kantorei performs motets by Johann Pachelbel and Andreas Hammerschmidt.
The American Kantorei is a choral and orchestral ensemble dedicated to the performance of church music from the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical and Neoclassical periods. The works of J. S. Bach form the core of its repertoire. Conductor and Music Director Robert Bergt is known as an international Bach scholar, especially in understanding the centrality of the German chorale to all of Bach’s musical compositions for worship.
Bach at the Sem is made possible through the generous support of patrons and donors. An offering is taken at each concert in support of the creation and encouragement of fine live performance.
