This is the first in a series of Bach cantata CDs recorded in the composer's church of St. Thomas's, Leipzig, by the Thomanerchor and Gewandhausorchester conducted by the present cantor Georg Christoph Biller. As explained in the booklet, the series will consist of cantatas for the main church festivals of the year, and this first one is for the Feast of St. Michael and the Reformation Festival.

The programme makes a very promising start to the series, firstly because the four works chosen - 19, 50, 79, 80 - bring us a tempting feast which includes some of Bach's best-loved cantatas. And secondly, because these performances are remarkably forthright and engaging. This is Bach performance somewhat closer to the traditional style of the generation of Günther Ramin, Fritz Werner and Kurt Thomas or, a little later, Karl Richter - rather than historically informed performance in the current sense. Nevertheless it brings its own kind of authenticity, based as it is on the Leipzig tradition and greatly enhanced by the fine voices of the church choir of St. Thomas's. The soprano and alto arias are taken by boys from the choir, and most beautifully so, with only the occasional slight lapse in tuning more than compensated by lovely tone and expressive sincerity. So BWV 19, "Es erhub sich ein Streit", goes superbly; and the short BWV 50, "Nun ist das Heil und die Kraft" - taken, like the other choruses, at a steady and natural-sounding tempo - sounds great as well. The modern-instrument orchestra are excellent, with trumpets and timpani making their appropriate impact in both of these works.

Best of all to my ear, though, is the glorious BWV 80, "Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott".
