Notes and Editorial Reviews

The liturgy is so constructed that in some of its most beautiful passages a dialogue emerges between the Spiritual and the human. Throughout the history of religions there are scenes in which the actors are our human brothers and their interlocutors, the direct and indirect entourage of the Creator. Bach, in whom lay a fervent yet frustrated dramaturge, was able to give ? at times - an operatic dimension to his many cantatas. Those that concern us on this very fine disc blend the liturgical aspect with a more theatrical dimension. Les Folies Françoises, one of the most appreciated of the young early music ensembles in France is releasing its first opus in a long-term and exclusive collaboration with Cypres. The fiery temperament and Read more infinitely coloured voice of Salomé Haller is finely matched with the highly idiomatic bass of Stephan MacLeod.
