We are thrilled that our latest CD of Bach Cantatas will be released by Hyperion Records on 1st March 2019. This CD is the culmination of the first five years of Amici Voices as we worked our way through the large scale sacred works of JS Bach and explored many of his cantatas and motets. We are so excited to share the results with you.
Gottes Zeit ist die allerbeste Zeit ‘Actus tragicus’ BWV 106
Partita 8 (Movement 8 of O Gott, du frommer Gott, BWV 767)
Komm, Jesu, komm BWV 229
Himmelskönig, sei willkommen BWV 182
Bach may only have been in his early twenties when he wrote it, but Cantata No 106 (the ‘Actus tragicus’) is a profound contemplation of things final; the motet Komm, Jesu, komm occupies similar eschatalogical territory. This is an inspired programme of some of the most moving vocal music ever written.
