Yorkshire Bach Choir: Bach Family Motets

  • St Michael le Belfrey York (map)

The Bach dynasty brought great innovation and expression to the motet genre. In this concert, we explore music composed not only by Johann Sebastian but also by members of his considerable musical family, including uncles, cousins and sons. Motets by these ‘other Bachs’ contain some real musical treasures in a surprising range of musical styles. Alongside motets by J S Bach we present examples from Johann Ludwig Bach, Johann Michael Bach and Johann Bach.
