Notes & Reviews:

Lively debate continues to abound regarding the authentic performance practice of Bach's church music. Many believe that multiple strings and massed voices were used, whereas others are sure that single strings and solo voices were employed. This disc features solo voices and single string lines, and is the first recording of these works to employ such forces. Wonderful, intimate chamber music textures reveal Bach in a new light.
