Notes & Reviews:

Johann Sebastian Bach composed a dozen church cantatas for a single solo voice. Cantatas 54 and 170 are both settings of texts by the Darmstadt court poet, Georg Christian Lehms, from his 1711 cycle of cantata texts, "Gottgefälliges Kirchen-Opffer." It is one of Bach's early cantatas, composed in Weimar, where Bach was employed as court organist and chamber musician. It is scored for an ensemble of two violins, two violas and continuo, used by Bach to create a wonderfully rich sound. Delighting audiences worldwide for more than three decades, Toronto-based Tafelmusik now reaches millions of people through its extensive touring, critically-acclaimed recordings, broadcasts, new media, and artistic/community partnerships. The vitality of Tafelmusik's vision clearly resonates with its audiences in Toronto, where the orchestra performs more than 50 concerts every year for a passionate and dedicated following.

Gramophone, August 2012
Taylor's gentle singing has the perfect atmosphere of sincerely beautiful piety...Charlotte Nediger plays dextrously and movingly, and the conclusion, 'Mir ekelt mehr zu leben', has an easy mood of graceful joy.
