As the culmination of the campus' semester-long celebration of the Reformation at 500, join us for an all-Bach program examining the impact of Reformation theology on music. Featuring the music of J. S. Bach, the greatest musical practitioner of the Lutheran movement, the concert will present three distinct liturgical forms as well as listening-lecture segments discussing the music and its relationship to theology throughout the program. Program will include period instruments.

Cantata Gott der Herr ist Sonn und Schild, BWV 79
Motet Der Geist hilft unser Schwachheit auf, BWV 226
