Amherst Early Music Festival Choral Concert: Bach Cantatas

Directed by Kent Tritle, AEMF's choral concert is always a highlight of the festival. This summer’s choral program features two early sacred cantatas by J. S. Bach—Cantata No. 4, “Christ lag in Todesbanden,” accompanied by strings and basso continuo, written for Easter; and Cantata No. 106, “Gottes Zeit is die allerbeste Zeit,” also known as Actus Tragicus, with accompaniment by two recorders, two viols, and continuo, composed for a funeral.
