Nymphs of the Rhine

German music from the 17th Century:

Buxtehude, Reincken, Erlebach, Kerll, Rosenmüller, and Schenck.

    In October, we open our 2016-2017 season where Bach himself began, with the poetic music of late 17th-century Germany.  It was to hear composers like Dietrich Buxtehude and Johann Adam Reincken that the young Bach travelled two-hundred miles and found a great deal of inspiration.
