Day of Bach´s Music – July 28, 2010 – An Appeal

The Evangelical Church of the Augsburg Confession in Slovakia invites cantors and organists in Austria, Germany, Switzerland and other countries to join us for The Day of Bach´s Music on July 28, 2010, the 260th anniversary of J. S. Bach’s death.

Please send an email message to bach@ecav.sk, with information about the place and time of your concert, the performers, background on the concert, and any other relevant information, along with a maximum of 6 photos. Your report will be published on the website of the Evangelical Church of the Augsburg Confession in Slovakia - www.ecav.sk. We will use the information to create an international cultural and pastoral network in honour of Johann Sebastian Bach.

In Slovakia we honour the great composer, Johann Sebastian Bach, during the Johann Sebastian Bach – Slovakia Festivals which take place every five years. The highlight of these festivals is March 21st, Bach´s birthday, when the Day of Organ takes place; and again on July 28th, the anniversary of Bach´s death, when many churches throughout Slovakia organize concerts of Bach´s music.

The centre of the Day of Bach´s music is always chorale. In 2010, it will be the chorale „Allein Gott in der Höh sei Ehr“. The Evangelical Church of the Augsburg Confession in Slovakia, in the cooperation with the prestigiuos editor, Editio Bärenreiter, will be publishing the ten adaptations of this chorale: „Allein Gott in der Höh´ sei Ehr“ (BWV 662, 663, 664, 675, 676, 677, 711, 715, 716, 717). The publication will include a professional hymnologic commentary and background notes on the chorale BWV 260.
