Sound in my Body
New College Chapel, Oxford
Tickets: £15 (Students: £5)
Cantatas for the 14th, 15th, 16th, and 17th Sundays after Trinity
Throughout the long summer and autumn Trinitarian period, the Lutheran lectionary’s emphasis on sin and sickness in mind and body reaches full tilt in expressions such as ‘The whole world is but a hospital’ in Cantata 25. But Bach’s music is the ‘balm of Gilead’ that heals all, above the ceaseless lament.
