Emmanuel Music Review

Concerts occur at Emmanuel Church, known as "the Bach church" since 1970 for the singing the master's cantatas during Holy Eucharist services on Sundays at 10 am, between September and May. Concerts, performed by a professional chamber orchestra and chorus, are among Boston's musical gems. Inquire about free Thursday noon concerts in Lindsey Chapel.

    Bach as Bach heard Bach

    Every Sunday (September-May), Emmanuel Music offers a FREE performance at 10 am as part of the liturgical service. It's a wonderful opportunity to hear some amazing music by professional musicians in a historic and beautiful church - for FREE.

    They also offer a six-week Lenten Concert Series on Thursdays at Noon in the Lindsey Chapel, which is also free.

    There are also evening concerts with very reasonable general admission prices, considering the professional quality of music you get to hear.

    Check out their website! It is one of the few (if not, only) places in the U.S. where you can hear "Bach as Bach heard Bach."
