About

The first cantatas offered by Bach in Leipzig: sinfonia, chorus, chorale, recitative, most diverse tunes, all struck by the eloquence of the musician, but also full of poetry according to deep spiritual commentaries. A great art is displayed here, which preludes to the sublime bouquet of music that the faithful will hear Sunday after Sunday ...

Reviews

The devil’s in the detail with the Ricercar Consort, as you can hear in the exquisite tenor aria, ‘Mein Jesus soll mein alles sein’. The power of its singular rising motif provides an obsessional longing, not dissimilar to ‘Ach mein Sinn’ in the first version of the St John Passion, and as gloriously believable as you’ll hear. Indeed, the key to the success of these readings is that while they are rooted in transparency, they are vibrantly resonant, boldly directional and never brittle. ... Just when you feel it cannot improve, the Ricercar Consort present a cantata [BWV 127] of the most profound poignancy. ... The pizzicato funeral bells of the soprano lullaby are among many delights, with Emmanuel Laporte’s oboe-playing representing the golden thread in a lovingly conceived and executed project.  Jonathan Freeman-Attwood
