Notes & Reviews:

Founded in 1978, The Bach Ensemble won international renown - including England's Gramophone Award - four years later with its revolutionary one-on-a-part recording of the Mass in B minor for Nonesuch. It further consolidated its reputation with a series of cantatas for L'Oiseau-Lyre. This beautifuly recorded disc from Dorian again features only four singers, accompanied by a group of only about a dozen instrumentalists. The result, as realized by Rifkin, is simply glorious!
