Actus Tragicus, an unusual and moving concert

Actus Tragicus

Coming next is a programme of music by Franz Tunder and JS Bach in Actus Tragicus. Find out more about this unusual and moving lunchtime concert…

Some of the greatest music ever written – from Heinrich Schütz to Eric Clapton – has been inspired by a range of reflective themes from penitence to bereavement. In this unusual and moving lunchtime concert, Musica Poetica perform two notable examples of music for such occasions.

But don’t expect funereal dirges and weeping sopranos in this concert! Both Tunder and Bach bring an amazing sense of joy and deliverance to these themes which result in two magnificently uplifting and life-affirming musical creations.
