BBC Proms 2019 | JS Bach with Solomon’s Knot


Singing with small forces and without a conductor, British musical collective Solomon’s Knot brings a contemporary clarity and freshness to all its performances.

The singers make their Proms debut with an all-Bach Late Night Prom of cantatas composed for the Feast of St Michael – the saint who, appropriately, protects against the evils of darkness and night.

The programme includes the richly scored cantatas Herr Gott, dich loben alle wirand Es erhub sich ein Streit, as well as the dramatic Man singet mit Freuden vom Sieg, with its glorious chorale finale.
