History & Mission:

Purpose:
The purpose of the Lutheran Bach Ensemble Foundation (= LBE) is the performance of the music of J.S. Bach, and that of composers whose music has a relationship to J.S. Bachís. The LBE will perform three or four different programs during the season, alternating works with a chamber musical character with those requiring larger forces. The intention is to work mostly with ensembles using period instruments. The LBE hass with a core of permanent singers and instrumentalists, but by working as a project-choir, new performers will also have the opportunity of taking part.
A permanent part of the programming wil be the cantata services of the Lutheran Church in Groningen. The Lutheran aspect of this music will be strengthened by its performance of the Lutheran Bachís music within the classical Lutheran liturgy. Further, the permanent rehearsal venue for the LBE is in the Groningen Lutheran church itself.

In practice:
The choir of the LBE consists of experienced and trained singers. The instrumentalists and soloists are professionals. The participants in each program will be determined by the requirements of the works to be performed. The group for each program will rehearse intensively for several months and then do several performances. Performers are expected to know their parts at the first rehearsal, which will allow the director to work on artistic and performance-practice matters from the beginning.
