Notes & Reviews:

Trauermusik is the most ambitious composition left by Johann Ludwig Bach, known as the “Meiningen Bach,” who belonged to a branch of the family separated from Johann Sebastian’s since the 16th century. Its genesis was rather unusual. Johann Ludwig had composed his cantatas to texts by his patron, Duke Ernst Ludwig, and was therefore commissioned to set the poem that the duke had written for his own funeral, in November 1724. Written five years before the St. Matthew Passion, this score already requires two choirs and a large array of instruments and must have utilized every musician in the court.

“In no other group is such a... high level of individual virtuosity fused into such a powerful communal sound.” — NEWSDAY

"Here's a real find...Don't be put off by the funeral music title; this is optimistic and celebratory and it bursts with trumpets-and-drums fervour in honour of the departed Duke of Saxe-Meiningen, while visions of the heavenly host mingle with deep-felt grief in complex counterpoint...Excellent performances; a major rediscovery which should be heard here." -The Observer

"The RIAS Chamber Choir enunciates its words clearly and accentuates the text lightly, thrilling to the stereo banter of the double choruses and bringing a wonderful grace to Johann Ludwig's less obvious ideas...A must-have for lovers of the German Baroque: no wonder Johann Sebastian thought it worth performing so music of Ludwig's music in Leipzig." -International Record Review

"Unmannered and irradiating solos from Rademann's singers allow the listener to penetrate the courtly virtues of employer and employee in unusually close collaboration - and the whole amounts to rather more than the individual parts...Rademann makes as strong a case for Ludwig's best surviving work as one can imagine." -Gramophone
