As you ought to know by now, Lutheran Radio UK, the ELCE’s round-the-clock English-language Lutheran radio station, has been running for quite a few months. If you haven’t, have a listen on the website, through an internet radio, or on your portable device (e.g. via TuneIn Radio).

Starting this coming Sunday, I will be presenting a new weekly show calledSunday Cantata. Each Sunday, I will introduce a cantata written for that Sunday by J.S. Bach.

The church cantatas of Bach are one of the most extraordinary artistic achievements in the history of Western culture. For several years, Bach produced a cantata a fortnight, or more, for the churches of Leipzig, beside all his other duties.

The music is outstanding, the theology profound and thoroughly Lutheran. What better way could there be to spend 15 minutes on a Sunday?

All the recordings come from the award-winning and most outstanding cycle of complete Bach cantatas by Bach Collegium Japan directed by Masaaki Suzuki.

Find out more by visiting the programme page.

I look forward to your company some time this Sunday!

P.S. If you want to buy the BCJ recordings, I can recommend eClassical, who sell them as high-quality downloads at a very reasonable rate.
