Falmouth Academy Community Series

The Falmouth Academy Community Series continues with Bach Scholar and conductor Mary Greer on Thursday, December 3, 2015 at 7 p.m. The discussion “Reimagining the first performance of Bach’s motet Sing unto the Lord a new song” will take place in Morse Hall at Falmouth Academy, 7 Highfield Drive.
Ms. Greer, a lifelong summer resident of Woods Hole, has explored the connections between Bach’s compositional choices and the contents of his theological library. A past president of the American Bach Society, Ms. Greer conducted the Woods Hole Cantata Consort from 1986 to 1996 and led “Cantata in Context,” a New York-based Bach cantata series from 2001 to 2011.
Bach’s motet Sing until the Lord a new song, long a favorite of choral groups, has baffled generations of Bach scholars. The motet was composed in 1726 or 1727, but nothing further is known about its genesis. The joyful tone of the opening movement has led some to believe that Bach composed the work for New Year’s, while the sober mood of the second movement has led others to believe it was written for a memorial service. In her talk, Ms. Greer unravels the complex history of this exceptional work and reveals her surprising discovery.
