This new cantata for Advent draws on Bach’s style of liturgical cantata in both structure and content, making use of period instruments and historically informed performance practice to create a work that is both a nod to the freshness and vitality of Bach’s own compositional style, yet maintaining a sense of relevance in our own day and age.

The service is based on the Lutheran Service of Vespers, with readings that reflect the Cantata.
