Bach: Cantatas, Vol. 12 – The Monteverdi Choir, The English Baroque Soloists, Sir John Eliot Gardiner

Volume 12 of this Bach series includes cantatas for the twenty-second and twenty-third Sundays after Trinity. Sir John Eliot Gardiner, The Monteverdi Choir, and The English Baroque Soloists performed these works in England, at All Saints’ Church in Tooting and at Winchester Cathedral, in November 2000. The soloists include James Gilchrist, Peter Harvey, and Joanne Lunn.

The highlight of the album is BWV 140 Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme (Sleepers, wake), one of Bach’s best known cantatas, and one that has long been part of the Monteverdi Choir’s repertoire. It is described as ‘a cantata without weaknesses, without a dull bar, technically, emotionally, and spiritually of the highest order’. BWV 55 Ich armer Mensch, ich Sündenknecht (I, wretched man, I, slave to sin) is Bach’s only cantata for solo tenor still in existence. It is sung movingly by James Gilchrist. Of three cantatas on the parable of the unjust steward, BWV 115 Mache dich, mein Geist, bereit (Prepare yourself, my soul) is considered outstanding for its subtle instrumental writing and spellbinding arias, which evoke the yearning of the soul for divine mercy.

The recording in Tooting is the only one in the whole series not to have been made live: the original concert took place in Eton chapel, right under the Heathrow airport flight path, so the recording team had to try to recreate the same conditions in a quieter place.





Volume 12 includes cantatas for the twenty-second and twenty-third Sundays after trinity. John Eliot Gardiner, The Monteverdi Choir and The English Baroque Soloists performed both of these programmes in England: at All Saints church in Tooting and at Winchester Cathedral, in November 2000. The soloists include James Gilchrist, Peter Harvey and Joanne Lunn.

The highlight of this album is BWV 140 Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme (“Sleepers, wake”) - one of Bach’s best known cantatas, and one that has long been part of the Monteverdi Choir’s repertoire. It is described as “a cantata without weaknesses, without a dull bar, technically, emotionally and spiritually of the highest order”. NWV 55 Ich armer Mensch, ich Sündenknecht (“I, wretched man, I slave to sin”) is Bach’s only cantata for solo tenor still in existence. It is sung movingly by James Gilchrist. Of three cantatas on the parable of the unjust steward (BWV 55, 89, 115), BWV 115 Mache dich, mein Geist, bereit (“Prepare yourself, my soul”) is considered to stand out for its subtle instrumental writing and spellbinding arias, which evoke the yearning of the soul for divine mercy.

The recording in Tooting (CD1) is the only one in the whole series that wasn’t recorded live: the original concert took place in Eton chapel, right under the Heathrow airport flight path, so we had to try and recreate the same conditions in a quieter place.
