J S Bach Cantata: Wo gehest du hin? BWV 166
J S Bach Cantata: Es ist euch gut, dass ich hingehe BWV 108
J S Bach Cantata: Wahrlich, wahrlich, ich sage euch BWV 86
While this year's celebration of J S Bach's genius is at least five months away from the moveable feast of Easter, it is the period following that seminal festival that is marked in all three of the Cantatas in our annual collaboration with the Musicians' Company and Adrian Butterfield. For the fourth Sunday after Easter, Bach set texts from the bible that extol the lessons of Christ's crucifixion and resurrection. The results are by turn joyous and intensely moving.

Prize winner in many international competitions, she won the Delius Prize in 2009 which led to an extensive collaboration with the cellist Julian Lloyd Webber. Her heritage has led to her advocacy of Nigerian composers' music including the Sonata by Ayo Bankole and she recently released a CD of works by African composers on the Heritage label.
