An historic recording of two of Bach's most beautiful cantatas, performed by some of the most celebrated names in baroque music, including tenor Nigel Rogers. Features a newly written essay by Jeffrey Dooley, and brand new text translations to English by linguist Z. Phillip Ambrose.

"...exemplifies the gradually emerging awareness of “historically informed” interpretations of J.S. Bach's music. Here Paul Steinitz utilizes an instrumental group of, chiefly, one player to a part and a chorus of twenty singers, approximating the dimensions of Bach's own ensembles...The Steinitz recording is one of the early examples of historically informed performance practices which have led us to the happy situation in which we find ourselves today. This beautiful CD deserves to be heard by every early-music enthusiast.” - Jeffrey Dooley

"The soloists are all good; Neil Hewlett is a bit heavy for today's tastes in Bach basses, but the others, notably a young Nigel Rogers, are very satisfying. Steinitz does a good job moving things along, and textures are nicely clear...If you like Rilling, you'll probably enjoy what is here"
