Baroque concert – La Chapelle des Minimes
« My lover is mine and I am his…until the day breaks and the shadows flee… » The Song of Songs, ‘the best song’, is a unique book in the Old Testament - a collection of love poems. Bach and three of his predecessors set some of them to music in our February programme; after St Valentine’s day, love is still in the air!
“The cantatas of the Minimes” have become a Brussels institution, already since 36 years. 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 a sumptuously baroque church where the faithful audience comes regularly for a great spiritual and cultural moment.
