Bach Family Legacy

In Thuringia and Saxony in the 17th and 18th centuries there were so many composers, organists, Kapellmeisters and Kantors named Bach that the word itself almost came to have a secondary meaning of ‘musician’. Awardwinning ensemble Vox Luminis explore the rich repertoire of sacred motets by Johann Sebastian’s uncles and cousins – including his father-in-law Johann Michael, the ‘great and expressive’ Johann Christoph, and the one member of the clan who might actually have answered to the name of Johann – and end with JS Bach’s great masterpiece Jesu, meine Freude.
