Canticum Novum's All-Bach Program

The Canticum Novum Singers, led by Harold Rosenbaum, perform an all-Bach program in New York City, 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 26. The program includes the motets "Komm, Jesu, Komm," "Lobet den Herrn" and "Jesu Meine Freude," plus a Sonata in D and Suite in E minor. For this concert, the ensemble will include Gwendolyn Toth, harpsichord, Motomi Igarashi, viola da gamba, and tenor soloist John Tiranno.

Founded by Rosenbaum, the group is now in its 38th season. It is probably most familiar to local audiences through radio concert broadcasts, including NPR, WNCN and WQXR. The group also performs with Peter Schickele at the PDQ Bach concerts at Carnegie Hall and was featured in an episode of CBS's "48 Hours" television program.

The concert wil be at St. Ignatius of Antioch Episcopal Church,
87th St. between Broadway and West End Avenue, New York City. Tickets at $25 and $15 for students and seniors, and are available by calling (212) 279-4200. Tickets will also be available at the door one hour prior to the performance.
