Comments:Marie-Noël Laporte, ATMA classique said:

Daniel Taylor's ensemble Theatre of Early Music (TEM) is back in this its second recording, featuring a line-up of the finest singers in three early Bach cantatas of rich and varied instrumentation. In accordance with certain findings that shed light on the original performances of Bach?s cantatas, the works are performed here with one singer to a part in the choral sections. The advantages of this solution in expressive suppleness and for the clarity of Bach?s brilliant counterpoint are plain to hear.

Le Theatre of Early Music (TEM), sous la direction de Daniel Taylor, est de retour dans ce deuxième disque. Y brillent quatre chanteurs de premier plan dans trois des plus anciennes cantates de Bach, d?une instrumentation riche et variée. En accord avec certaines recherches sur l?exécution historique des cantates de Bach, les ?uvres sont présentées ici avec un seul chanteur par partie dans les sections chorales. Les avantages d?une telle solution pour le rendu expressif et la clarté du contrepoint de Bach deviennent évidentes à l?écoute.
