Notes and Editorial Reviews

...Philippe Herreweghe’s latest set of Bach cantatas is also highly commendable. The three works here explore different attitudes to death, a topic that inspired some of Bach’s loveliest music – such as BWV 8’s opening movement, sumptuously done by Collegium Vocale, and the alto aria ‘Ich will auch’, movingly sung by Ingeborg Danz. Herreweghe, like [Masaaki] Suzuki, remains sensitive both to the music’s beauty and to its deeper, spiritual intent.

Performance: 5 (out of 5), Sound: 5 (out of 5)
