Comments:Marie-Noël Laporte, ATMA classique said:

The award-winning Theatre of Early Music with Daniel Taylor and friends is back in this new recording of poignant funeral cantatas by Bach and Telemann. Death was a beloved theme for both composers, who understood its agony as a prelude to the soul?s joining with God and sought to justify its hour through their transcendent musical language.

Fort de son Prix Opus, le Theatre of Early Music, avec Daniel Taylor et ses distingués collègues, est de retour avec ce nouveau disque consacré à de bouleversantes cantates funèbres de Bach et de Telemann. La mort était un sujet de choix pour ces deux compositeurs, qui voyaient dans l?agonie s?y rattachant un prélude à la communion de l?âme avec Dieu, et qui cherchaient à justifier son caractère inéluctable par la transcendance de leur langage musical.
