Notes and Editorial Reviews

Bach may only have been in his early twenties when he wrote it, but Cantata No 106 (the ‘Actus tragicus’) is a profound contemplation of things final; the motet Komm, Jesu, komm occupies similar eschatalogical territory. This is an inspired programme of some of the most moving vocal music ever written.
