Notes and Editorial Reviews
The award-winning Theatre of Early Music with Daniel Taylor and friends is back in this new recording of poignant funeral cantatas by Bach and Telemann. Death was a beloved theme for both composers, who understood its agony as a prelude to the soul's joining with God and sought to justify its hour through their transcendent musical language.
