JS Bach Cantata: Erfreute Zeit im neuen Bunde ('Joyful time in the new covenant'), BWV 83

Steven Devine director, harpsichord

Ciara Hendrick alto

James Way tenor

James Newby baritone

with Professor Kishan Dholakia, School of Physics and Astronomy, University of St Andrews

The music: One of Bach's most varied cantatas. Mixing joyful arias with funeral sounds, it's a rollercoaster journey celebrating the glories of life and the sadness of death.

The science: Our guest is Professor Kishan Dholakia from the University of St Andrews' Optical Manipulation Group. A world expert in the physics of light, he's fascinated by how photonic imaging can unravel the mysteries of the brain.

Bach, the Universe & Everything is Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment's very own Sunday service for inquiring and curious minds; a place to bond with music lovers and revel in the wonders of science.
