Quintessence: Choral Artists of the Southwest
J. S. Bach Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott, BWV 80
Mendelssohn Symphony No. 5 in D Major/d minor, “Reformation,” Op. 107
We’re proud to welcome Quintessence in this performance of Bach’s majestic Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott Cantata—with delightful vocal counterpoint and graceful harmonies, coupled with gorgeous instrumentation from the orchestra. Mendelssohn’s grand, yet sublime 5th Symphony ultimately weaves Bach’s “Ein feste Burg” melody into a majestic close to another great NMPhil night!
