Tenebrae – Easter Light

This event has taken place. See Upcoming events Here

In the Easter drama, basic emotions and dilemmas are brought together like nowhere else. Treason and transfiguration. The end of the old and the sprouting of the new. The fear of death and darkness must give way to the faith in life and light.
Like no other composer, Johann Sebastian Bach has been capable of adding colours and depth into this Easter drama. This evening, based on Bach’s celestially beautiful motet in six movements, the ‘Jesu, Meine Freude’, the Mogens Dahl Chamber Choir presents a concert devoted to Easter, which, with two significant premieres and especially Arvo Pärts’ beloved modern classic, the ‘Berliner Messen’, connects the past to the present in the most beautiful and touching manner.
