Notes & Reviews:
St Thomas's Boys Choir Leipzig and their director Georg Christoph Biller present a comprehensive overview of the entirety of Bach's choral cantata repertory, thirty in all. Also including a bonus CD of live performances in the St. Thomas cathedral, this collection also features the Gewandhausorchester, and is sequenced to the liturgical year traveling from the Advent season to Christmas and Epiphany, through to Lent, Easter, Ascension Day and Whitsun. Bach also wrote cantatas for the Trinity Sundays, the Marian festivities as well as the feast of St Michael and the Reformation feast determine the ecclesiastical year. Dive into the immensity of Bach's visions as realized through his cantatas.
