About

In the beginning there was great scepticism towards the thesis that Bach’s sacred vocal works were originally written for solo voices. Now this interpretation is firmly established. With this edition of one cantata for each Sunday and the great feasts of the ecclesiastical year, Sigiswald Kuijken and La Petite Bande strengthen this 'new' approach in their excellent performances.

Vol.18 offers three cantatas - one for the twenty-sixth Sunday after Trinity, one for the sixth Sunday after Trinity and one for Palmarum. This volume of the complete edition brings the cycle, which began in 2005, to a close.

"Among current cantata series Sigiswald Kuijken‘s has a distinctive place, his one-to-a-part voices and few instruments achieving striking delicacy. His vocal soloists sing with disarming simplicity and ease in arias, and blend superbly in ensemble. A rare treat, Kuijken – and Bach – at their very best.” - BBC Music Magazine, March 2010
