Bach Cantata: ‘Himmelskönig, sei willkommen’, BWV 182
Easter Oratorio, BWV249
London Bach Singers
Feinstein Ensemble
Martin Feinstein director

The Feinstein Ensemble joins forces with the London Bach Singers under the direction of Martin Feinstein for one of Bach’s ever-popular choral masterworks, Easter Oratorio, in this special Passiontide performance.


Bach again uses his favourite librettist, Picander, for the most brilliantly orchestrated of his Easter masterpieces. Here, unlike the Christmas Oratorio, he assigns specific character roles to each singer almost in the manner of a Passion play. The Feinstein Ensemble once again teams up with the London Bach Singers under the direction of Martin Feinstein. As a fitting prelude to the main work, they will perform the Palm Sunday Cantata, Himmelskönig, sei willkommen, with its famous opening depicting Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem.

Date:Sat 9 Apr
Start time:7.30pm (Doors: 7pm)
Venue:Hall One
