Hebrew Prayer in B Minor
Special thanks to all who attended the triumphant world premiere of this new work!
Hebrew Prayer features the complete music of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Mass in B Minor – considered the greatest work in the choral repertoire and featuring many early music styles such as Italianate Baroque, German fugue, and Polonaise.
This adaptation makes parallels to the original Latin Mass text (such as in movements that praise God) and expresses them in the words of ancient Hebrew prayers.
Sung in Hebrew, the work will be performed by CONCORA’s singers and soloists with a chamber orchestra under the direction of Chris Shepard, Artistic Director.
Hebrew Prayer in B Minor is the creation of Dr. Eric Weitzner, a devotee of Bach’s music and former student of Hebrew and Jewish theology. Read about the concept and development of his adaptation.
