Pulpit & Playhouse — Bach, Handel, Purcell

Music of the Baroque

Whether written for the chapel or crafted for the stage, Baroque music goes hand in hand with theater. Nicholas Kraemer leads Handel’s thrilling Dixit Dominus and Bach’s impassioned Cantata 131, “Out of the depths / I call, Lord, to you.” Excerpts from Purcell’s Fairy Queen, a perfect marriage of poetry and dance, round out a night of musical drama.
