CHORAL CONCERT, with host Peter Togni Sunday, April 21, 2013 9:00 - 11:00 am, (9:30 - 11:30 NT) on CBC Radio 2

Bach  month continues with a morning of his great cantatas

Johann Sebastian Bach is considered by many to be the greatest composer of all time in the western classical music tradition. So in honour of his incredible output the month of April is all Bach on Choral Concert.

This Sunday Peter Togni will bring you a collection of Bach’s cantatas. A cantata comes from the Italian word cantare which literally means “to sing”, and you will hear great singing on this program – everyone from John Elliot Gardner’s Monteverdi Choir and Concentus Musicas Wien through the Ottawa Bach Choir singing some of  the master’s greatest sacred cantatas.

Don’t forget that CBCMUSIC.CA has lots to offer for classical music lovers, You can check out the Choral Concert blog and the 24/7 choral stream plus extensive videos and concerts in all genres.
