Notes and Editorial Reviews

With this recording of the cantatas for the Feast of the Purification of Mary, John Eliot Gardiner once again gives ample justification for his momumental survey of all of J. S. Bach's cantatas in celebration of the 250th anniversary of the composer's death. This recording is a most fitting remembrance of this anniversary, for the textual themes of this particular feast day give voice to the happiness of death and the avowal of eternal life that are central to Christian thought. Many listeners will desire this recording for the masterpiece 'Ich habe genug' while approaching the other pieces as merely a broader textual and musical context for what is arguably one of the most somberly divine musical creations in the history of Western art Read more music. If that is the case, the other cantatas recorded here will abound in unexpected delights, from the hastening step of the tenor aria "Eile, Herz, voll Freudigkeit" to the two triumphal chorales with horn accompaniment. But selecting this disc for 'Ich habe genug' alone would not be misguided, for Peter Harvey's performance of this work for solo bass voice and small orchestra is rapturously moving. Read less
