Product Description

In Lutheran Germany of Bach's time the Whitsun or Pentecost festival was celebrated like other high ecclesiastical feasts on three consecutive days, Sunday through to Tuesday. Music was performed in the services on all three feast days and Bach usually wrote cantatas for each of them. There were nine of these Whitsun cantatas altogether, and this collection presents a representative cross-section: BWV 172 for the Sunday and then BWV 68 and BWV 174, respectively, for the Second Day of Pentecost, and BWV 175 for the Third Day.

As is typical for works to be performed on the high feasts, they invariably display a rich instrumental configuration: BWV 172 includes trumpets and timpani; BWV 68 makes use of 3 oboes, violoncello piccolo, and supporting cornetto and trombones; and BWV 174 features 2 horns, 3 oboes, along with an unusual complement of nine concertato strings.

These recordings have been selected from the award-winning cycle of recordings of the complete cantatas of J. S. Bach by Ton Koopman and the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir. The featured soloists are sopranos Barbara Schlick and Deborah York, altos Kai Wessel and Bogna Bartosz, tenor Christoph Pregardien, and bass Klauss Mertens.

Personnel:
Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir, Ton Koopman (conductor)

Soloists: Barbara Schlick, Deborah York (soprano), Kai Wessel, Bogna Bartosz (alto), Christoph Pregardien (tenor), Klaus Mertens (bass)

I have had this CD for at least 2 years. It is in my car system. I listen to it every morning on the way to work. The chorals are magnificent. It sets the whole tone for my day. I do not speak or understand German, so it is the quality of music that is inspirational in its beauty and performance.
