By DAVID BRYSON TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 27 Nov. 2011
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This 2-disc set is a member of a 27-part series containing all of Bach's extant cantatas. Present this time are the 3 cantatas for the 17th Sunday after Trinity plus, on disc 1, one of the motets, this time uniquely with instrumental doubling indicated by the composer (although Tovey states that it should be provided in all the `unaccompanied' motets). Disc 2 was recorded in the church where Bach is buried, and so concludes with the chorale that he dictated from his own deathbed. Earlier on the disc are the 2 cantatas for the 18th Sunday after Trinity together with another from the 25th after Trinity, presumably because the year 2000, when the entire series was performed and committed to record, had no 25th Sunday after Trinity.

This is now the 21st of this great series in my own collection, and I can report as usual that it is distinguished not just for quality but for consistent quality. Occasional reservations in my 20 earlier reviews have been very exceptional, and I have none this time. This makes the reviews very repetitious of course, but I can never assume that any reader of one has read any of the others, so I have to flog through the basic points of note now for the twenty-first time. First, the whole project was simply breathtaking. The year 2000, the 250th anniversary of Bach's death, was dedicated to a `pilgrimage' in which Gardiner and his associates performed all the cantatas on the liturgical dates for which they were composed, so far as that was possible given the church calendar in 2000. Recording was only a by-product of the great overall aim to bring Bach's masterpieces to as wide a concert public in Europe and America as could be organised, but one of the most striking successes is precisely the high standard of the technical work.

...and again and again. In this issue, the picks for me were a wonderful rendition of BWV148, with its fabulous trumpet obbligato in the opening chorale, and of the solo cantata (although it does have a chorale at the end) BWV169, well known for its delightful orchestral opening. The second CD was recorded in the Thomaskirche, Leipzig, one of the churches in which Bach worked in his final years and in which he is buried. That CD ends with a fitting tribute to the great man, the chorale "Vor deinen Thron tret ich hiermit" (BWV668, aka The Deathbed Chorale). It is sung a cappella by the Monteverdis, standing around the grave. Beautiful, wonderful, sublime music, all of it.

The second disc from St Thomas' Church Leipzig shows the commitment of Gardiner's Bach Cantata pilgrimage. These are live performances as the Monteverdi Singers travel across Europe celebrating Bach's wonderful cantatas.

I am at present collecting the whole of this marvellous series. Production values are as usual second to none but the interpretations are for me simply oustanding- the choral ,solo and conducting are quite superb.
A truly inspired and quite revelatory set of Bach Cantatas.
