The Continuo Collective of the South is an ensemble dedicated to the vast repertoire of Baroque chamber music. The "continuo," the harpsichord and ‘cello, is the consistent, driving force of the group as they cover all of the harmonies and reinforce the "voice" most fundamental to baroque accompaniment: the bass line. This core duo is always included in the Continuo Collective’s concerts and joined by a variety of instrumentalists or vocalists depending upon the repertoire being performed.

Winter (Concerto No. 4 in F minor, Op. 8, RV 297) Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741)
  • Allegro non molto
    • To tremble from cold in the icy snow,
      In the harsh breath of a horrid wind;
      To run, stamping one’s feet every moment,
      Our teeth chattering in the extreme cold
  • Largo
    • Before the fire to pass peaceful, contented days while the rain outside pours down.
  • Allegro
    • We tread the icy path slowly and cautiously, for fear of tripping and falling. Then turn abruptly, slip, crash on the ground and, rising, hasten on across the ice lest it cracks up. We feel the chill north winds course through the home despite the locked and bolted doors… this is winter, which nonetheless brings its own delights.

Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight.
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia,
Christ the Savior is born!
Christ the Savior is born

Silent night, holy night!
Son of God love’s pure light.
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth

Johann Christoph Friedrich Bach (21 June 1732 – 26 January 1795), was the ninth son of Johann Sebastian Bach.

The 1911 Encyclopædia Britannica says of him "He was an industrious composer, … whose work reflects no discredit on the family name." He was an outstanding virtuoso of the keyboard.

A significant portion of J. C. F. Bach’s output was lost in the WWII destruction of the Staatliches Institut für Musikforschung in Berlin, where the scores had been on deposit since 1917.
