COR16039 J.S. Bach: Cantatas 34, 50, 147

J. S. Bach

Bach was Leipzig’s Director Musices between 1723 and 1729, as well as being Cantor of St. Thomas’s School involving providing music for the four principal churches and also any other special sacred or secular occasion. During these years Bach supplied at least three complete annual cycles of Cantatas for the church year.

The rich variety of his writing for solo voices and orchestra along with thrilling choral textures is well represented in these three cantatas.

"The Sixteen are, as usual, in excellent form here… Recording and remastering are top-notch; notes and texts are complete. Thanks to CORO, many choral collectors who never got around to taking their full pick of this legendary group’s old Collins series now have reason to rejoice."
American Record Guide

"The interpretation is quite simply magisterial, in keeping with the music being performed; the impact is unforgettable."
Goldberg Magazine
