JS Bach Cantata: Lobe den Herrn, meine Seele (‘Praise the Lord, my soul’), BWV 143
Steven Devine director, harpsichord
Charlotte Beament soprano

with Professor Helen F Gleeson, OBE, FInstP. Cavendish Professor of Physics and Head of School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Leeds

The music: To mark the New Year, we’ll be performing a cantata Bach wrote for New Year’s Day. As well as three solo singers, it’s notable for its unusual instruments, including timpani and three horns.

The science: Joining us is experimental physicist Helen Gleeson, who produced the first graphene-based liquid crystal device in collaboration with the team that discovered the wonder material at the University of Manchester.


Bach, the Universe and Everything is Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment’s very own Sunday service for inquiring and curious minds; a place to bond with music lovers and revel in the wonders of science.
