      3/7/20 EVER ANCIENT, EVER NEW: Bach & Nowakowski on the Soul's Awakening

      Continuing our cycle of Bach cantatas, this program during Lent 2020 will feature penitential music of J.S. Bach from various sacred works, including arias from his famous Matthäus-Passion and Johannes-Passion and solo organ works. Three Notch'd Road has commissioned living American composer Mark Nowakowskis Quo Vadis and will give the world premier of this work, scored for three singers and instrumental ensemble. The text recounts a Christian tradition that when St. Peter tried to flee martyrdom, on the road of escape he saw a vision of Christ who asked, "Quo vadis/Where are you going?" which encouraged Peter's return to his duty and ultimately his own crucifixion in Rome. Musicians: Fiona Hughes, baroque violin Peter Walker, bass Nathan Medley, countertenor Jessica Petrus, soprano Rebecca Landell Reed, baroque 'cello Todd Fickley, organ
