Bach: Nine Sacred Cantatas (3CD)

The complete cantata recordings of a Bach conductor who defined performance standards of these works in his day, newly remastered and compiled together for the first time on CD.

The sequence of cantata recordings which he made between 1950 and 1952 for DG’s then-new Archiv imprint of early and Baroque music.

The Berlin Motettenchor is a superbly disciplined vocal ensemble of evidently young voices and from the ranks of the Berliner Philharmoniker come obbligato instrumental solos of an eloquence still to rival any recording in the catalogue.
