Sound in my Body

New College Chapel, Oxford

3pm

Tickets: £15 (Students: £5)

Cantatas for the 14th, 15th, 16th, and 17th Sundays after Trinity

JS Bach

Throughout the long summer and autumn Trinitarian period, the Lutheran lectionary’s emphasis on sin and sickness in mind and body reaches full tilt in expressions such as ‘The whole world is but a hospital’ in Cantata 25. But Bach’s music is the ‘balm of Gilead’ that heals all, above the ceaseless lament.
