Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment – Cosmic Dawn

Bach Cantata: Wie schön leuctet der Morgenstern (‘How Beautifully Gleams the Morning Star’), BWV1
Rowan Pierce soprano
Nick Pritchard tenor
Dingle Yandell bass
Dr Emma Chapman speaker

With Dr Emma Chapman, Royal Astronomical Society Fellow, Imperial College London

The music: A cantata written when Bach was very busy – he was expected to produce six over the course of a month at the same time that he was writing the St John Passion. This one is more flamboyant than many others, with the violinists getting to show off in a concerto grosso-style.

The science: How did the universe emerge from its dark ages after the Big Bang? Dr Emma Chapman tells us about her work researching early stars, the first objects to produce light in the history of the universe.


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.
