    Bach:  Choral Motets

    Singet dem Herrn Der Geist hilft unsrer Schwachheit auf Jesu, meine Feude Furchte dich nicht Komm, Jesu, Komm Lobet den Herrn The Chorus of Emmanuel Music Michael Bettie, conductor

    Though not composed as a cycle, the six J.S. Bach coral motets form a varied and ambitious evening of choral music, seldom if ever heard together in Boston in a single program. Each motet was composed for a separate occasion, generally the funeral of an important person, allowing the composer to select texts of unusual beauty and variety. A complete evening of Bach motets illustrates the virtuosity of the Emmanuel Chorus, developed by performing Bach's sacred choral music in the weekly Sunday services at Emmanuel Church.
