9712 JG Groningen
City Cantata service
The Luthers Bach Ensemble will perform Bach’s cantata ‘Ich habe meine Zuversicht’ in this music-led service in the Martinikerk. Theo Jellema will play the organ.
Under the beautiful starry ceiling of the Martinikerk, the congregation today will enjoy the sounds of Baroque music played and sung by the musicians of the Luthers Bach Ensemble.
The cantata ‘Ich habe meine Zuversicht’ was almost lost to posterity when the manuscript was split up and divided among collectors; today the LBE will perform a reconstruction by the organist and musicologist Pieter Dirksen. The Martinikerk organ will also be heard, as Theo Jellema accompanies the congregation and also performs a couple of works himself at its console.
