About

A new live recording of Bach’s Lutheran Mass in F Major (BWV 223), Cantata “Süßer Trost, mein Jesus kömmt” (BWV 151) and Magnificat in E flat (BWV 243a), recorded in London at the end of a European tour in December 2016.

The Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists under Sir John Eliot Gardiner present a mixed programme of J.S. Bach’s sacred choral works. The programme moves from the intimacy of “Süßer Trost” to the vast celebration of joy that is Bach’s Magnificat.

All notes and texts are included in English, German and French translations.

Reviews

Exemplified by the unselfconscious innocence of Angela Hicks in the cantata’s long opening aria, Gardiner has more and more tended to cast and coach singers in a vein of expression peeled of traditionally soloistic or assertive methods of delivery: here, the text is everything. ... Even if the members of the Monteverdi Choir aren’t singing off the book, as they and other vocal ensembles have done in recent years, they sound liberated from the score. The fugues are tight without being regimented; indeed, Gardiner’s old recording sounds a little stiff by comparison, even if it set a standard at the time which this new recording supersedes.  Peter Quantrill
