History & Mission:

J.S. Bach, the most famous and one of the most venerated composers of all time, left the world a treasure of music, which, almost entirely forgotten for a hundred years after his death in 1750, is now regarded as the final statement of the Baroque era of music. He composed volumes of works in every musical genre in use during his day except opera. As 21st Century musicians possessing more than one thousand compositions from his pen, we are challenged to present here a few of the monumental works of the master. His music, a Donum Dei (gift from God) as he often described it, has been a creative influence on musical listeners, professional musicians and students of the arts all over the world.

The pinnacle of J.S. Bach's incredible output is the B-minor Mass (BWV 232). Exultate presented the Credo portion of this monumental work. They also performed Cantata BWV 12 with a new English translation, from which a portion of the B-minor Mass ((BWV 232)) was derived. To round out the program, the Exultate orchestra played the much loved Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D which contains the familiar Air on a G String).
