The art of improvisation was highly prized during the Baroque era, and Bach was a particularly skilled practitioner. The Houston Chamber Choir adds a modern twist to this venerable practice with the help of noted Houston jazz pianist Paul English. Between the Chamber Choir's performances of Bach's magnificent motets, Singet dem Herrn, Der Geist hilft and Jesu, meine Freude, Mr. English and his jazz trio will create responses inspired by the motet's music and text. The point-counterpoint promises to be fascinating. While the idiom will be jazz, the spirit will be Baroque.
