Cantatas: BWV 52 & 60 & 116 & 140 on SACD-Hybrid

Wachet Auf, Ruft Uns Die Stimme: Johann Sebastian Bach Cantatas, Bwv 52, 60, 116 &140, Bach, J.S. / Petite Bande / Kuijken, Release Date: 10/30/2012, Composer: Johann Sebastian Bach, Conductor: Sigiswald Kuijken, Orchestra/Ensemble: La Petite Bande, Number of Discs: 1. In the beginning there was great skepticism towards the thesis that Bach's sacred vocal works were originally written for solo voices. Now this interpretation is establishing itself more and more. With this edition of one cantata for each Sunday and the great feasts of the ecclesiastical year Sigiswald Kuijken and La Petite Bande want to strengthen this new approach and prove it right by their excellent performances. This Vol. 15 of the edition contains cantatas which Johann Sebastian Bach wrote for the last four Sundays before Advent: BWV 52, False world, I trust thee not!", BWV 60, O Eternity, thou thunderous word", BWV 116, Thou Prince of Peace, Lord Jesus Christ", BWV 140, Awaken ye, the watchman calls us". "Among current cantata series Sigiswald Kuijken's has a distinctive place, his one-to-a-part voices and few instruments achieving striking delicacy. His vocal soloists sing with disarming simplicity and ease in arias, and blend superbly in ensemble. A rare treat, Kuijken - and Bach - at their very best." (BBC Music Magazine, March 2010, review vol. 9)
