Details

"O Eternity, you word of thunder …" Thus begins one of the most dramatic Cantatas of J. S. Bach. Perfectly suited to the Lenten Season, the music vividly addresses the seminal battle humankind wages between hell and heaven, darkness and light, sin and redemption. First evoking terrifying images of purgatory’s torments, howling and gnashing of teeth, the music then calls humanity to change, to come to its senses, to renounce the dark forces of the world. Ultimately, faith offers deliverance. This cantata inspires both, awe, even terror vis-à-vis eternal suffering and death, and comfort of redemption through faith.

Join the Department of Music’s Dr. Marianne Pfau as she offers recorded musical examples and demonstrates her instruments live. The lecture provides a preview of the concert on the ‘Angelus Series of Sacred Music,’ to be held Saturday, April 1, 2017 at 7 p.m. in Founders Chapel.

For ages 55 and up.
