Festival Service

St. Catwg's Church, Llangattock

Sunday 6th May at 10:00am

The service includes pieces from:

  • Bach: Cantata BWV 16 Herr Gott, dich loben wir

Performed as part of the Crickhowell Music Festival.

Originally intended to mark New Year celebrations, this festive cantata, complete with its frequent reference to that great song of thanksgiving, the Te Deum, presents one joyous song of praise. By connecting the worship of heaven with that on earth, the cantata’s underlying theme becomes a desire that such musical praise will pour great blessings on all the community.
