There are six cantatas here, three apiece for the 12th and 13th Sundays after Trinity, all composed in the 1720's and amounting to a little less than two hours of playing time. The format will be entirely familiar to followers of the series. The presentation is made to resemble a book in a hard cover, an attractive and original idea but as usual I advise a little caution in handling the two discs as it is slightly tricky not to touch the surfaces. There are two essays, one by one of the performers, in this case the double-bass player, and a long and elaborate contribution from Gardiner. He has even more to say than usual this time, and of course the trouble with having something to say is that it gives a reviewer more to comment on. The first thing to be recorded therefore is that to be offered this essay is a privilege for us. It is erudite, illuminating, thoughtful, affectionate, reverent and candid. You may find it slightly heavy going at a first reading, but this is not a production for just one reading. I read it for the basic background before I listened, and I reread it after three or four playings to appreciate better the thinking that had gone into the interpretations. There is any amount of detail, and I preferred to learn rather than find points to dispute.Read more ›
The other cantatas are less well known (to me anyway), and they receive great performances. Recommended for all Bach lovers.

As ever, Sir John Eliot Gardiner's conducting exposes the intricacy of Bach's sacred music. Complexity, clarity, emotion, revealing the essence of each cantata.Published on 9 Mar. 2014 by Mozartiana
These John Eliot Gardiner Bach cantata recordings are all superb. I'm gradually trying to collect them all. Why am I unable at the moment to obtain Vol. 3? Frustrating!Published on 17 April 2013 by Ann J. Pearson
