Cantata Insight Series
Nov. 11, 6 p.m. This Advent cantata originally dates from 1714, when Bach was at Weimar.

This unique Advent cantata was reworked for a different Liturgical setting and performed twice in leipzig (1723 and 1731). In this work Bach juxtaposes joy and somber yearning, anticipating the final judgment. Tickets: 303-758-2820 or visit coloradobach.org.
