Notes and Editorial Reviews

Like a mixed chocolate candy sampler that indulges individuals through an excess of luscious flavors and textures, this disc presents an appealing potpourri of the instrumental and vocal music of Johann Sebastian Bach. Textures ranging from solo instrument to accompanied chorus, and affects that span from sublime quietude to joyful exuberance, assure that everyone will find something to savor here, if not an overabundance of delights.
Several instrumentalists--Jeanne Lamon on violin, Anner Bylsma on cello, and Lutz Kirchhof on lute and theorbo--appear on multiple tracks. Lamon's playing in the concerto movements is effectively articulated and warmly coloured. Bylsma's tone is ravishing, and his interpretations are poetic. Kirchhof's
Read more virtuosity is extraordinary, but his approach may be too daring for conservative listeners. Read less
