Meines Lebens Kraft

Lessons in mildness
Jesus’s sacrifice to redeem mankind was so great and overwhelming that the Easter message is difficult to grasp. That joyous message of faith in a happy ending is at the root of the three cantatas in this final concert, after which even the most stubborn unbeliever will see the (musical) light.

This concert is part of the Bach Academy Bruges 2023
