Bach: Cantatas Vol 24 / Gardiner, Geller, Towers,

Full size album art
Catalog: SDG107
Format: CD

"The third release from the Bach Cantata Pilgrimage - the previous launch issues in the series received phenomenal press coverage and tremendous reviews for performance, sound quality and packaging. This new set, Volume 24, brings live recordings from the Schlosskirche in Altenburg (featuring the famous Trost organ that Bach himself was invited to 'test' when it was newly built) and from St Mary's in Warwick. The three cantatas for Cantate are concerned with the sorrow surrounding Jesus' farewell to his followers, the trials that await them in his absence and their joyful thoughts of seeing him again. The cantatas for Jubilate cover a wide gamut of styles and moods and tease new meanings out of the Gospel texts. From the starkness and searing pathos of BWV 12 to the astonishing superimposition of opposing moods in BWV 103, and culminating in a searing performance of BWV 146, based on the famous D minor keyboard concerto, this release provides another example of glorious singing and playing - the vocal soloists, the Monteverdi Choir, The English Baroque Soloists and Sir John Eliot Gardiner all at their very best.
