Johann Sebastian Bach: Sacred Cantatas for Soprano Nos. 51 52 84 & 199 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This recording of Bach's Sacred Cantatas for Soprano is an essential addition to any classical music lover's collection. Soprano Siri Thornhill lends her superb voice to the recording. It is pristine and a joy to listen to, weaving seamlessly with the musicianship of the Cologne Chamber Orchestra. The recording opens up with a cheerful Sinfonia, in which the oboe and horns really shine. I felt like I had just been transported to an Austrian palace. The choral movements were also quite lovely. The final movement in "Falsche Welt" is stately and presented as such as the voices move together fluidly. At times in the final movement of "Ich bin vernugt" it was nearly haunting. Overall, the production was sharp and alive, as if I was on stage with the performers and the order arrangement of the cantatas was well thought out. The end of "Mein Herze schwimmt" and all of "Jauchzet Gott" served as the clean up hitters for a spot-on recording.
