The Leaving Cert Music students attended a presentation and performance of one of their prescribed works, J.S. Bach’s “Jesu der du meine Seele” in Limerick’s beautiful medieval cathedral, St. Mary’s on Wednesday evening 19th October. This Leaving Certificate guide was presented by Peter Barley who dissected and analysed the cantata’s seven movements with musical illustrations by the orchestra, soloists and choir. It was a wonderful opportunity for the students to hear the themes they had studied isolated and played live by the various instruments and voices. The presentation was followed by a full performance of the work.
