Now in its 41st year, the Bach Marathon has been a tradition in Baltimore since 1976, providing an afternoon and evening of music-making in honor of one of the Western canon's greatest composers. You are invited to come to hear a single performer, a whole hour, or for the entire event! Featuring some of the region's best Baroque interpreters, the marathon represents the flowering of Bach's creative genius, featuring works for organ, harpsichord, voice, and all manner of instruments. Below, you can hear the Choir of St. David's perform the motet Jesu, meine Freude from the 2015 marathon, and Aus der Tiefen rufe ich, from the 2016 marathon. Find out more about this year's schedule, performers, and repertoire here, and enjoy videos and recordings of past performances below!
