Taking inspiration from the guiding light of Epiphany, this holiday program presents the modern-day premiere of a cantata about seeking and finding a new spiritual home: Christoph Graupner’s cantata Das Volk so im Finstern wandelt (The people wandering in darkness see a great light). Telemann’s New Year’s cantata Der mit Sünden beleidigte Heiland and seasonal pastorales by Heinichen and Pez round out the offerings.
