Bach – Magnificat BWV 243 – Van Veldhoven | Netherlands Bach Society in 2022

Updated: 07-2022


The Magnificat, performed by the Netherlands Bach Society for All of Bach, is the first large choral work that Bach composed after his appointment in Leipzig in the spring of 1723. It is an ‘old-fashioned’ but delightful five-voiced work that uses Latin, just like the other rarity among Bach’s works, the Mass in B minor.

Recorded for the project All of Bach on May 2nd 2014 at the Grote Kerk, Naarden. If you want to help us complete All of Bach, please subscribe to our channel or consider donating
