Notes & Reviews:

The Arcis-Vocalisten München consists of 50 vocalists from the Academy of Theater and Music in Munich. All have extensive experience in renowned Munich and Bavarian ensembles. Professor Thomas Gropper, the ensemble's Artistic Director, is known not only from his vocal and teaching activities, but also as moderator and speaker at the Bavarian Radio Broadcasting Company. This CD consists of two early cantatas by J.S. Bach. "Aus der Tiefen rufe ich, Herr, zu Dir" is probably the earliest existing Bach cantata, written in 1707-1708, while Bach was an organist in Mühlhausen. + BWV 182, "Himmelskönig, sei willkommen" was Bach's first commissioned work at the Weimar court, where he was required to compose one cantata each month, and was premiered on Palm Sunday of 1714.

Fanfare
Thomas Gropper's temperate direction serves the music well. The choral singing is nicely burnished and admirably precise... .the overall impression is positive. The featured (but unnamed) wind soloists - the oboe in No. 131 and the recorder in No. 182 - are especially fine, more reasons to give the disc your consideration. In all, an excellent 131; a good 182.
