Notes & Reviews:

Atma presents the third volume in its complete edition of Bach's Cantatas in collaboration with Montreal Baroque. Directed from the organ by Eric Milnes, the four solo singers and musicians deliver an interpretation faithful to historical sources, on original instruments, and with the choir singing one voice to a part. This recording brings together the Cantatas dedicated to the cult of the Virgin Mary. The Cantata BWV1 was written for the day of the Annunciation, and is one of Bach's most well-known works; Cantata BWV82 was written for the Feast of the Purification (Candlemas), and Cantata BWV147 was written for the Feast of the Visitation. Atma's Bach cycle incorporates the most recent research on performance practice, confirming that these Cantatas were originally performed one singer to a part, including the choruses. This cycle marks the first complete recordings of the Bach Cantatas performed one-on-a-part. The previous two volumes are ATM22400 (7, 30 and 167) and ATM22401 (19, 130 and 149).
