Notes and Editorial Reviews

These classic and triumphantly successful Brandenburg performances created a mighty stir when first published in 1950, for their revelatory recording quality and for 'the super-abundant vitality, firmness and intelligence' of Münchinger and his Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra. They well deserve their reinstated place in the catalogue and have to be counted among the milestones of recording history. Suzanne Danco, the admired Belgian soprano, was under contract to Decca when these Cantata recordings were made in 1953 and her sure intonation and purity of tone are well shown in the sacred Cantata no. 51 ('Jauchzet Gott in allen landen') and in the secular no. 202 ('Weichet nur, betrübe Schatten'), a wedding Cantata.
