Lenten Bach Vespers: “Out of the Depths”
Sunday, March 12 at 5 p.m.
We invite you to join the Bach Ensemble of St. Thomas, Terrace Park, and vocal soloists under Dr. Carlton Monroe for another evening exploring worship through lens of the incredible music of J. S. Bach. This month we present Cantata 131, Aus der Tiefen rufe ich, Herr, zu dir (“Out of the depths, I cry unto thee, Lord”). Written early in Bach’s musical career, Cantata 131 is a deeply reflective and emotional piece that is the perfect focus for a Holy Lenten season.
Be sure to come early and hear more information about the piece at our Pre-Vespers Lectures at 4:30 p.m. before each Vespers service, led by Xavier University’s Prof. Douglas Easterling. St. Thomas is located at 100 Miami Ave. in Terrace Park. More info at www.stthomasepiscopal.org.
