Carus ‘Mitsingheft’ to Chorale Cantatas

From 7 to 16 June, Leipzig will host the annual Bachfest. The city will be full of concerts and events around Johann Sebastian Bach and his works. This year, the chorale cantatas take centre stage under the motto Choral Total. In no fewer than 16 concerts, all the chorale cantatas from this cycle will be performed. Bach choirs and orchestras from all over the world come to Leipzig to perform this music.

The audience gets to sing along with the final chorales, and for this purpose Carus Verlag has made a special publication, a ‘Sing-along-booklet’, available as a free download (you need to create an account).
