Bach's Mega Motet
Both loved and feared by choral singers around the world, Jesu, meine Freude is an awesome motet of eleven movements, replete with word painting, impressive fugues and a satisfying symmetrical structure. We are really looking forward to getting our teeth into this work, which will be sung in Baroque pitch. We hope that our weekly workshops, Zoom Q&As and new interactive rehearsal module will enable you to immerse yourself in the wonderful world of J. S. Bach.

On Demand means you don't have to be available at the exact times and dates stated in order to take part. You can log in to our website at any time after the broadcast and enjoy the session at your leisure. You can also repeat sessions as many times as you like in order to perfect your part. On Demand access comes as standard with our Virtual Vocals.
We'll be inviting you to pop over to Zoom for a short debrief and Q&A following each workshop. You can share your passions with us and spend time with your fellow singers.
