The Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists celebrate Christmas with a mixed programme of J.S. Bach’s sacred choral works. As we approach the 500th Anniversary of the Lutheran Church, these works transport listeners to 18th-century Leipzig for a traditional Christmas celebration. The programme moves from the intimacy of “Süßer Trost” to the vast celebration of joy that is Bach's Magnificat. The Bach at Christmas project is dedicated to the memory of philanthropist and patron of the Monteverdi choir, Sir Ralph Kohn. The concerts from which these recordings were taken took place at the Alte Oper, Frankfurt, in December of 2016.

This album presents two transcriptions of the cantatas BWV 170 and BWV 82: two polyphonic works of Joaquín Des Prés and William Byrd, that appear here like "two old faces" of Bach. Heaven appears as a territory of inspiration, a kingdom of peace and joy, beloved delight of the soul (BWV 170). These four works are reflected in a mirror of inspiration: the theme of the final game and farewell to the deceased Master. This vision of the "Beyond" provides a space of harmony in which both cantatas connect, as an echo of the mysterious scene of the presentation of Jesus in the temple …

This is a delightful, inventive, witty, charming, enchanting, inspiring disc. In the Verbruggen disc, only four of the six sonatas appear together, plus one other trio sonata (BWV 1031). Perhaps Ms. Verbruggen thought that BWV 526 and 528 did not translate well to the recorder. In any event, the recorder and the harpsichord are outstanding here, as is the recording quality. Highest recommendation.
