Bach Ich Habe genug
A luminous program led by Geoff Nuttall that offers an opportunity to hear three glorious Baroque masterpieces, in the intimate and candlelit setting of Union Hall.
"Duncan is one of those rare lyric baritones with rich, full low notes—ideal for singing Bach’s music. His showpiece was the sacred solo Cantata No. 82, Ich habe genug. Duncan showed tremendous sensitivity to the music, while bringing out the wide emotional and dramatic range of the text." The Toronto Star
