In Bach, the Universe & Everything we bring together science and Bach cantatas to create a thought-provoking Sunday evening event.
JS Bach Liebster Jesu, mein Verlangen (Dearest Jesus, my Desire, BWV 32)
This Cantata is the form of a dialogue between the soul and Jesus. Inspired by the finding of Jesus in the temple, it reminds us of what we have lost and what we can find. It is some of the most wonderful music Bach composed.
JS Bach Prelude, Freu dich sehr, o meine Seele (BWV Anh. II 52)
Byrd Christe qui lux es et dies
Albinoni Adagio from Oboe Concerto Op 9 No. 2
In this talk, Professor Samuel Cohen from the University of Oxford encourages us to reflect on our personal ambitions and ask “How can I be sure that tomorrow’s decisions will satisfy today’s objectives?”
