The 2nd February is the feast of the Purification, or the Presentation in the Temple, or Candlemas.  To celebrate this, we have two pieces written for Candlemas - Biber's splendid fourth Mystery Sonata and Bach's cantata Ich habe Genug.  The third piece is related in mood to the cantata:  Bach's great motet Jesu, meine Freude.  This will be sung one-to-a-part, as it was originally written.

Members of Byrdsong will be joined by some of the country's top baroque instrumentalists.
