Format: Audio CD
Here is volume 9 in this superb series of Bach cantata recordings covering works written for the principal church festivals of the year - in this case the Marian feasts of the Purification (BWV 125), Annunciation (BWV 1), and Visitation (BWV 147). These are live recordings from Bach's own church in Leipzig, by the choir of the Thomaskirche and the Leipzig Gewandhausorchester directed by the excellent Thomaskantor Georg Christoph Biller. According to the booklet notes there will be ten discs in the series in all, of which most have already appeared with, at the time of writing, just a couple more still to come. I've already written reviews for some of these, so I hope any readers who have seen these will forgive repetition of the explanatory information contained in these first two paragraphs.

The volumes I've heard so far have been absolutely lovely, and this present one is no exception. These are spirited, forthright, engaging performances - not strictly in the historically-informed style which has become common in recent years with period instruments, and in some cases one voice per part in the choruses, as in recordings by such as Kuijken, Rifkin and, to some extent, Suzuki and Gardiner. Rather these Leipzig recordings are somewhat closer to the traditional style formerly exemplified by the likes of Günther Ramin, Karl Ristenpart, Fritz Lehmann, Kurt Thomas or, a little later, Karl Richter - but with many differences too, as will be seen. Having said that, in addition to modern recording quality, the performances in the present series bring their own kind of authenticity, based as they are on the illustrious Leipzig tradition, greatly enhanced by the fine and superbly trained voices of the boys' choir of St. Thomas's and, of course, by the splendid Gewandhaus Orchestra.
