OPEN EDUCATION: MR BACH’S MAGNIFICAT - In 1723 Johann Sebastian Bach moved to Leipzig to take up the post of Music Director. Keen to impress his new congregations and his employers, the Town Council, two months after his appointment he composed the most brilliant setting of Mary’s Song, the Magnificat, ever written. Join Emeritus Professor Colin Gibson on Wednesday, 19 September, at 7.30pm in the Mornington Methodist Church, Galloway Street, as he tells the story that lies behind this wonderful piece of music and plays big-screen excerpts from DVD recordings by famous conductors.
