Bach concert - La Chapelle des Minimes
At Ascension, after Easter but before Pentecost, Bach had climbed to nearly the summit of his liturgical year´s musical celebrations. With their trumpets and timpani, our two cantatas are nearly bursting with joy; add flutes and oboes and we can hear the birds and smell the flowers. Spring is finally here!
“The cantatas of the Minimes” have been a Brussels institution for 37 years now. Every fourth Sunday of the month, we present the cantatas of J. S. Bach as the Cantor of Leipzig had done in his time. Free admission at 17.00 for a concert of about 45 minutes in the very beautiful church of Saint-Jacques-sur-Coudenberg wherethe faithful audience will regularly come for a great spiritual and cultural moment.
