Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment – Hunting for Aliens

Bach Cantata: Es reisset euch ein schrecklich Ende ‘A Terrible End Shall Sweep You Away‘. BWV90
Ciara Hendrick alto
James Way tenor
Jonathan Brown bass
Professor David Waltham speaker

With Professor David Waltham, Department of Earth Sciences, Royal Holloway

Please note, due to unforeseen circumstances, Professor Lewis Dartnell will no longer be able to take part in this event. Professor David Waltham (Royal Holloway) is now the guest speaker.

The music: With its uncompromising title, this theatrical cantata opens with an anguished tenor aria and remains one of the most furious and intense of the collection.

The science: Is there life on other worlds? It’s one of the most profound questions we can ask, and science is slowly getting closer to finding an answer. Are we alone in the universe? Professor David Waltham closes the season with a look at the latest research in astrobiology – the search for extraterrestrial life.

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
