Notes & Reviews:

Import Hybrid-SACD pressing.

Gramophone Magazine
The wonderfully trim and naturally expressive period band and choir, underpinned by an exceptional group of continuo players... . High-quality Bach singing and playing."

The Guardian
"A profound 'Ich habe genug' and exquisite singing from Sampson.

BBC Music Magazine
Easily the best-known piece here is Ich habe genug (BWV 82). Peter Kooij's tender, yearning account is more modestly stated than versions by his more extrovert rivals. Gerd Türk, assisted by Suzuki's beautifully shaped phrasing, makes a stronger case for the austere Ich armer Mensch (BWV 55) than any rival version that comes to mind.

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
As the honeymoon period of Bach's appointment began to wear off, two or three years after his arrival in Leipzig, the composer's cantatas became less central to his creative life. More works by other composers began to appear in the church calendar as energy was increasingly focused towards new large-scale projects, of which the St Matthew Passion was the most pressing at the time these four solo cantatas were composed. Smaller resources may also suggest a shortage of adequate forces in Leipzig in the months between late 1726 and early 1727 but there is no let-up in quality. This latest Bach Collegium volume includes one of the most celebrated of all bass-baritone works, Ich habe genug, in a reading of profoundly felt utterance by the experienced Peter Kooij. This is an even and fluent version, if in 'Schlummert ein' a touch too objective and laid-back. Yet the world-weariness of this great slumber aria is beautifully caught by Masaaki Suzuki in both the textural sensibility and rhythmic nuance of the ensemble. Unforced and natural, this is a reading reminding us of the simplicity of the work's unalloyed beauty... Sampson and Kooij share the delights of No 58, Ach Gott, wie manches, a symmetrical and passionately conceived work framed by splendid duets in which the bass paraphrases the soprano chorale (the symbol of Soul and God) - transformed from a tortured chaconne in a cathartic concerto romp. This is a fine close to another largely successful addition to this distinguished series.
