What our headnote does not tell you is that while all four singers do, indeed, participate in all four cantatas, soprano Hermans has no solo movements at all, singing only in the “choral” movements; alto Noskaiová has no solos in BWV 65. One-to-a-part Bach obviously requires great skill and confidence on the part of the singers, and Kuijken’s quartet responds extremely well on both counts.


This fourth volume in Sigiswald Kuijken’s limited exploration of the Bach cantatas covers the beginning of the calendar year with cantatas for New Year’s Day (No. 16, composed in 1726), Epiphany (No. 65, 1724), and the Sundays following each (Nos. 153 and 154, respectively, both 1724). This, by and large, is a happy time of the church year, and Bach’s music for the two festival days is suitably extroverted, calling for brass (trumpets for New Year’s, corni da caccia for Epiphany) and winds. The Sunday cantatas, more subdued and introspective, provide effective contrast. No. 153, scored for strings only, draws its inspiration from the story of the flight to Egypt. No. 154, for oboe and strings, is probably a parody of an earlier cantata. The Gospel lesson tells of the time when the young Jesus remained in the Temple to question the scholars there while his parents journeyed home, unaware of his absence.


Kuijken’s performances are gratifyingly persuasive, though I must say that the confluence of oboe da caccia and corni da caccia in the tenor aria of Cantata 65 brought back vivid (but not unpleasant) memories of the good old days when no one—including, I suspect, the performers—knew quite what was liable to emerge from the other ends of those “authentic” wind instruments. The recording is outstanding, and the tri-fold, hard paper wallet bears two booklets, one describing the series and the other the immediate disc. For listeners who are curious about the one-to-a-part phenomenon and/or aren’t ready to invest in a complete cantata set, this series will be highly desirable, and this disc no less so. Others should find much to admire here too.
