Three of Bach's most beloved church cantatas based on hymns by Martin Luther:
A concert showcasing Bach's incredible talent at making the meaning of a text come alive. Powerful choral fugues, expressive vocal solos and intricate instrumental writing combine to make this concert of cantatas an engaging experience highlighting Martin Luther's dynamic words.
Who We Are
TACTUS is an ensemble of professional singers and instrumentalists with active careers as performers and teachers. Our members are talented musicians who have performed nationally and internationally and who share a love of excellent music-making.
Rather than build a concert around an ensemble — the old model for a symphony concert — TACTUS instead builds its ensembles around the music selected. This allows for flexibility, innovation, collaboration, and artistry at the highest level.
TACTUS (pronounced tock-toos)
is a Latin word meaning touched, moved or felt.
It refers to the pulse or beat that undergirds every piece of music.
