The words ‘art of dying’ sound strange to modern ears, perhaps. Although there are related philosophical, religious and ‘end of life’ health care, and much-debated legal concerns today surrounding the subject of dying, we probably rarely, if ever, think of preparing for death as an art form.

'Bach in Context' – a long-term collaboration between Musica Amphion and Gesualdo Consort Amsterdam – sheds new light on Bach’s magnificent repertoire: cantatas, motets and organ works that are related in a liturgical-musical way are performed together in a quasi-liturgical setting.

This release is the fifth in this elegantly presented series in CD/Book format.
