Johann Sebastian Bach’s music has enlightened musicians and audiences for more than three centuries.  Abendmusik celebrates Bach’s 335th birthday by offering five of his six motets- among the most challenging and rewarding pieces in the choral repertoire- sung by the radiant voices of sounding light.  Tom Trenney will perform Bach’s incomparable “Passacaglia” on the majestic Lied Organ.
