Celebrate the old and new year with Bach’s Cantata #28 “Praise God! Now the Year is Coming to a Close.” It opens with the words “Think upon this, how much good God’s hands have done for you in the old year! Sound a happy song of thanks to Him…” And concludes with the prayer, “Give us a peaceful year, protect us from all sorrow, and nourish us gently.”
Soloists Anna Haagenson, Laura Thoreson, Carl Halverson, and Kevin Walsh join St. James Bach Choir and orchestra of strings and 3 oboes. Hannah Brewer is guest organist with prelude music beginning at 4:50.
