Notes & Reviews:

Even in the earliest works we find signs of the full genius of the future cantor of St. Thomas's, as in the famous Actus Tragicus canata (justly regarded as the summit of the 'old-style' cantata), or the extraordinarily plaintive accents of Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen. For it is precisely in following the stylistic and aesthetic conventions of the past that Bach succeeds in surpassing, and even in transcending them.

Gramophone
