The RCM Chamber Choir and Baroque Orchestra come together under the baton of Chair and Head of Historical Performance Ashley Solomon to perform popular Baroque works.
Watch! Pray! Pray! Watch! was composed for Advent in 1716, whilst You shall weep and wail was written for Jubilate Sunday in 1725. The concert also celebrates contributions made to the orchestral genre by Bach’s youngest son Johann Christian and second cousin Johann Bernhard.
