This CD gives examples of the work of many of the Bach family who were noted musicians in 17th & 18th century Thuringen and introduces some who were new to me. The choice of trumpet and piano is an odd one and may not appeal to purists but it seems to work. Particularly moving for me is the arrangement of the prelude on the Passiontide hymn "O Mensch bewein dein Sunde gross".
In general I liked this CD but the choice of piano as accompanying instrument may not be to everyon's taste.
