1 Singet dem Herrn ein neues Lied BWV 225 (Sing to the Lord a new song)
motet for two four-part choirs and basso continuo

If someone has time and mood to come, you are warmly welcome. I suppose that during the intermission, as it was last time, the audience will have a chance to go for a walk inside Karolinum, and see much from the history of Charles University, people who taught there and who influenced its development, or have a look at a great library inside.
