Programme Note

How do you evoke angels in music? Even for Bach, as he composed music for the yearly Feast of St Michael and all Angels, it must have been a challenge, but it was one that inspired some of his greatest sacred works. Bach’s angels are mighty creatures, battling Satan in apocalyptic battles, but they are also gentle souls who teach us how to sing. To open their festival residency, the inspirational group Solomon’s Knot draws together three of Bach’s great Michaelmas cantatas and performs them alongside the famous Magnificat, in which the Virgin Mary responds to the message brought by the angel Gabriel.
