Pfarrerin Ruth Alber, Anna Kellnhofer (soprano), Klaudia Zeiner (alto), Benjamin Glaubitz (tenor), Karsten Müller (bass), Camerata Bachiensis

Entry by programme: € 2,00 (no advance sale)

What a great shame it is that most of the vocal compositions by Johann Melchior Molter have been lost, including include cantatas, festive and funeral music and perhaps even operas. But one Passion oratorio has come down to us. It lay, virtually disregarded until now, in a library in Sondershausen. This work has now been re-edited for the 2019 Bach Festival and will enjoy its first modern-day performance in this Matins service.
