About

CPE Bachís two collections of religious songs, published in 1758 and 1780Ė81, were among the most popular eighteenth-century Lieder publications. Most of the songs selected for this CD have never been recorded before with their complete texts. They are also accompanied by the clavichord, the composerís favourite instrument, underlining their intimate nature, intended more for private devotional use than for public performance. This CD is released to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the composerís birth, on 8 March 2014.

Norbert Meyn is equally at home as a singer of Baroque, Classical and contemporary music and as an interpreter of German Lieder. As a concert soloist he has appeared at the Barbican Hall, the South Bank Centre, St Johnís Smith Square, and the Royal Albert Hall in London, and also at Usher Hall in Edinburgh, the Halle International Handel Festival, the Utrecht Festival of Early Music, with the Salzburg Bach Choir and in the Bach Cantata Pilgrimage of the Monteverdi Choir and Orchestra. He moved to the UK in 1997 to study at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Since 2001 he has been a professor there and, since 2005, also at the Royal College of Music, where he teaches classes in German Lieder.

Terence Charlston studied piano and organ from childhood and later took degrees in Oxford and London, and in organ, harpsichord and musicology. As a harpsichord and organ soloist, he has toured extensively around Europe, as well as to Japan, the USA and South America. In September 2007 he was invited to join the staff of the Royal College of Music, London.
