Trinity Bach Project - Home

Opening doors to Bach. Opening doors with Bach.

Trinity Bach Project is a vocal and instrumental ensemble dedicated to serving ordinary audiences the extraordinary musical and spiritual riches of J. S. Bach’s choral repertoire. Our mission is to remove barriers around classical choral music and open the doors of sacred places—both historic architecture and human hearts—with Bach’s abiding light.

Tax-deductible gifts to the project may be made through our umbrella organization, Imago.

Program five looks back before Bach once again, this time to the great English Renaissance composer Thomas Tallis. We strike a Lenten note “from the depths” with Cantata BWV 131 “Aus der Tiefen,” Tallis’s “Lamentations of Jeremiah,” and Motet BWV 228 Fürchte dich nicht (“Do not fear”).
