Cantata Insights Series: #80 – Ein feste Burg is unser Gott (A Mighty Fortress is our God)
One of Bach’s best known cantatas, #80 was written for the Reformation Day in Leipzig and was based on Martin Luther’s most famous hymn, Ein feste Burg is unser Gott (A Mighty Fortress is our God). Join us to celebrate the 500th anniversary of Lutheran Reformation by experiencing what is considered to be one of the longest and most complex first movements in Bach’s cantatas.
