The celebrations of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation are in full swing around the globe. The Bach Society of Minnesota concluded their last season with a performance of the Reformation cantata, "Ein feste Burg," Bach Cantata 80. The opening movement is Bach at his celebratory best. Trumpets sound as orchestra and chorus combine to make an ecstatic shout, a joyful noise.
The Bach Society of Minnesota's performance is in this week's Regional Spotlight.
