Cantata Service

Cantata Service 3 December 2023, Grote of Jacobijnerkerk church, Leeuwarden
Start 19.00 hrs, doors open at 18.30 hrs

Sunday 3 December is the first Sunday of the Advent period. Therefore the cantata service will be festively ushered in with the impressive opening chorus from the cantata 'Machet die Tore weit' by Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767). It centres on the text of Psalm 24:7: 'Lift up, O gates, your heads, lift up, ancient entrances: the king full of majesty will enter.'

Following Telemannn's beautiful opening chorus, the cantata 'Komm herein, du Gesegneter des Herrn' by Gottfried Heinrich Stölzel (1690-1749) will be performed. Stölzel was a contemporary of Johann Sebastian Bach. He is less well-known today, but he was a well-known composer in his time. Bach was also well known for his compositions.
