One new cantata and one old one proclaim the free gift of salvation by grace alone

A Festival Reformation Service on October 27 will hold the world premier of  Balint Karosi’s new cantata “Words of Beginning” based on an original text by Kai Hofmann-Krull that dedicated to  First Lutheran Church of Boston for its upcoming 175th anniversary. Hoffman-Krull’s text reflects the light and dark imagery in J. S. Bach’s great Reformation cantata BWV 79 “Gott, der Herr ist Sonn und Schild” and is expanded to a narrative on Genesis the star of Bethlehem and Luther’s enlightenment.

Read more on the First Lutheran Music website where the full text of the cantata is available as well as other texts, recordings and information about the music heard every Sunday at 299 Berkeley Street.
