After a first recording on the Analekta label featuring Bach's Magnificat and Vivaldi's Gloria, The Bach Choir of Bethlehem performs Songs of Hope, an inspired program of works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Stephen Paulus, Benjamin Britten and Leonard Bernstein. All of the music on this album was commissioned, one way or another, for special occasions, in thankfulness for the past and in hopefulness for the future. Bach's stunning motet for double choir Singet dem Herrn, BWV 225, was composed either for New Year Day or Reformation Day. It was discovered in 1789 by Mozart, who listened with astonishment and said, "Now there is something one can learn from!"
