Guest: Dr. Markus Rathey, Assoc. Prof. of Music, Yale University

Bio: http://music.yale.edu/faculty/rathey-markus/

 This month's "Notes on Bach" episode features Dr. Rathey discussing Bach’s Advent music in its liturgical and historical context, focusing on Advent pieces mentioned in his latest book. Aimed at general audiences, Bach’s Major Vocal Works: Music, Drama, and Liturgy provides musical interpretation drawn from historical and liturgical contexts of some of Bach’s most well-known works. To order go to http://yalebooks.com/book/9780300217209/bachs-major-vocal-works. We also briefly mention his newer book on the Christmas Oratorio, available from Oxford University Press at https://global.oup.com/academic/product/johann-sebastian-bachs-christmas-oratorio-9780190275259?cc=us&lang=en&

Special note to listeners: Markus and I agreed prior to recording that I would use the Anglicized/Americanized pronunciation of his surname, instead of the German pronunciation, to help listeners who might search online for more information on his books to be able to spell his name accurately.
