When J.S. Bach assumed the post of Cantor of St. Thomas Leipzig in 1723, he achieved the opportunity to realize his artistic aspirations: A Well Regulated Church Music. On the first Sunday after Trinity in 1723 Bach began a self-imposed goal to provide cantatas for most Sundays and feast days of the church year. In all, Bach composed a remarkable five cycles of cantatas, of which three survive. Bach Collegium San Diego opens the 14th Season with cantatas 179 and 42, chronicling Bach’s first year in Leipzig.

Bach Collegium San Diego's annual performances of Messiah have become a San Diego tradition, and one of this country's most compelling interpretations of this beloved oratorio. A stellar cast brings both the grandeur and intimacy of this oratorio, as if for the first time.

Choral students from Point Loma Nazarene University join Bach Collegium San Diego's 2nd annual apprenticeship program.

The span of the eighteenth-century saw a fundamental change of musical language that is clearly demonstrated in two of the greatest composers of the century: J.S. Bach and Franz Joseph Haydn. Bach's Pentecost cantata, Erschallet, ihr Lieder (1714), with its allusions to the Pentecostal wind and fire serves as the book-end and back drop to Haydn's monumental Lord Nelson Mass (Missa in Angustiis, 1798).
