I was very sad to learn yesterday that the future of the excellent Bach Vespers at St Mary-at-Hill is in doubt, following the news that Martin Knizia, the series’ director, is returning to Germany.
Knizia’s final Vespers, directing his Sweelinck Ensemble and some excellent singers, takes place this evening at 18:30; details here.
Those of you who follow the PDtP Twitter feed will know that I have recommended these Vespers performances over the past few months so I urge you to ignore (nay, defy!) the rain and get yourself over to St Mary-at-Hill for your last chance to hear one of these very fine performances of the music of JSB.

I completely agree: it is a tragedy that the various parties involved have not managed to agree sufficiently to keep this series going.
