Instead of the deeply serious Bach of the church cantatas, our October concert shows our composer as a relaxed and cheerful family man playing himself in the Coffee Cantata—one of his most popular works.  We then present his earliest secular cantata—the ‘Hunt’—almost unknown except for one melody that everyone will immediately recognize.  Both are Minimes premières—don’t miss them!

“The cantatas of the Minimes” have been a Brussels institution for 40 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 where the faithful audience will regularly come for a great spiritual and cultural moment.
