Bach comes to Fulneck Jesu meine Freude image

What better way to spend a Bank Holiday than to immerse yourself in the beautiful music of the great J S Bach ?

Set in the peace and rural tranquility of the Fulneck Moravian Church near Pudsey, this programme explores a stunning kaleidoscope of moods and emotions, such as perhaps only JS Bach can offer. Come and hear music that is by turn joyful and mournful, reflective and yearning, worldly and spiritual, peaceful and raging with apocalyptic power!
