Here is some info on CPE Bach
He was son of J S Bach who wrote the famous Toccata for organ and the St Matthew Passion.
It is interesting that his musical style was seen as the bridge between the baroque style of his father and the classical style of Mozart. The Magnificat that St Andrews are doing is certainly more flamboyant and dramatic than the work of his father.
Have a listen on youtube! It is a fabulous work!
