Soloists from English Touring Opera and the Old Street Band combine with local choirs in a concert of Bach’s extraordinary cantatas for Advent.
Archive: Autumn 2014

ETO soloists and period players from the Old Street Band will perform cantatas No 154, 156, 161 and 159, with Bach’s inspiring choruses sung by local choirs in some wonderful heritage churches around the country.

  • Last night’s concert was fantastic. You have now got two new fans for life who will try and get to all your Exeter Cathedral concerts. The beautiful singing was so enchanting it brought tears to my eyes. Thank you.
