Notes and Editorial Reviews

“It’s rather nice to go back to the King’s way, to the old firm of Willcocks and Preston, and remember what it was that pleased us then. We were not ashamed in those days to accept Bach as a decent Englishman, and we liked to hear his church music in a devotional context. BWV numbers aid the listener in the Schemelli Gesangbuch items, and the Bartholomew translation of the motet has been renovated. Frankly, it is a lovely and moving record, which will appeal to far more people than any amount of authenticity—and learned folk can enjoy it as a period piece. There is still a need for Bach in English”
