BACH FACTORY on BWV 140 "Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme"

The “Bach Factory” is a video series by the J.S. Bach-Stiftung St. Gallen that gives you interesting insights into Bach’s cantatas – including exclusive excerpts from their live performance.

Johann Sebastian Bach’s cantata BWV 140 «Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme» is renowned as one of his most mature and best-loved sacred compositions. Despite the work’s popularity – or perhaps for that very reason – it will be equally entertaining and instructive to explore this positive and joyful cantata in greater depth. Join Xoán Elías Castiñeira and Rudolf Lutz as they uncover the cantata’s secrets!

The concert recording, introductory workshop and reflective lecture (in German) are available at Bachipedia.
