Bach Du Friedefürst, Herr Jesu Christ (Thou Prince of Peace, Lord Jesus Christ) BWV 116

Professor Alexandra Olaya-Castro Professor of Physics, University College London

Nature’s Hidden Nature

The science

You’ve probably heard of quantum physics, and might know it’s about weird things such as tiny particles being in two places at the same time. But quantum biology? Professor Alexandra Olaya-Castro is a leading figure in this emerging field, which explores the role quantum mechanics plays in biological processes, from photosynthesis to birds’ remarkable navigation systems.

The music

This cantata is something of a musical sandwich, with flowing, optimistic first and last movements surrounding sections with darker moods of judgement and fear. It’s one for horn fans, with a prominent natural horn complementing the soprano singer.
