Bach, the Universe & Everything

Cosmic Dawn

Marvel at our extraordinary universe and the music of Bach with our new Sunday morning series for inquiring and curious minds, with divine music, lively conversation and stimulating science.

The music

Bach wrote this cantata when he was very busy – he produced six in one month while he was writing St John Passion. This one is more flamboyant than many, with the violins getting the chance to shine.

The science

How did the universe emerge from its dark ages after the Big Bang? Dr Emma Chapman tells us about her work researching early stars.

Our very own Sunday service is a place to bond with music lovers and revel in the wonders of science. There is no better way to start a Sunday morning.
