Founded in 1968 by conductor Frieder Bernius, The Stuttgart Chamber Choir (Kammerchor Stuttgart) is devoted to historically informed performances. Tonight we hear three choral masterworks by Bach.

Recorded live in concert June 6, 2017, in St. Martin’s Church, Braunschweig (Brunswick) Germany, as part of the 2017 Soli Deo Gloria Festival.

Thanks to WFMT’s association with the European Broadcasting Union, we are able to offer tonight’s program as a 90-day stream from July 18 through October 16. A blue “Listen” button will appear below when the stream is available.
