Recorded in the City of London in 2012, this album features the missing cantatas from the Bach Cantata Pilgrimage: the Ascension Cantatas were the only ones left unrecorded in 2000, due to noise issues. They were recorded live at St Giles Cripplegate. The quartet of soloists include one of the original Pilgrimage soloists, bass Dietrich Henschel, alongside a new generation of Bach interpreters who have worked with the ensembles since 2000 – making this recording a "bridge" between a Bach tradition started 13 years ago and today.

Bach's cantatas are among the highest achievements of Western musical art, yet studies of the individual cantatas that are both illuminating and detailed are few.

J.S. Bach – Cantatas Vol. 48 - Masaaki Suzuki [2011] (PS3 SACD rip)
SACD ISO Image = 3.34 GB | Scans PDF (800 dpi): 26 MB | 5% Recovery | Conductor: Masaaki Suzuki
Classical | Label: BIS Records | Catalog Number: BIS-SACD-1881 | DST 1bit-2822,4kHz 2.0, 5.0

Volume 48 of Masaaki Suzuki’s and Bach Collegium Japan’s traversal of Johann Sebastian Bach’s cantatas opens with Cantata 34, O ewiges Feuer, o Ursprung der Liebe – a jubilant work intended for Whit Sunday 1727, but with its origins in an earlier, secular wedding cantata.

Gott, man lobet dich in der Stille (BWV 120) was composed for a festive church service marking the annual town council election in Leipzig. But the programme also also offers moments of introspection and quiet beauty, such as the celebrated alto aria Ich will dich all mein Leben lang from Cantata 117, here performed by the counter-tenor Robin Blaze, well-known to the followers of this series.

On we go to the 43rd release in this, probably the best series of Bach’s cantatas going, at least in Super Audio. (I still like Gardiner’s series a lot, though it will not be complete.) But Suzuki, far more than chief competitor Ton Koopman, has given us a set for the ages, not only performed with consummate style, historical considerations, and musical substance, but with a feeling for these seminal religious works that transcends the merely mechanical presentation that we so often—too often—hear. These three pieces are reached through the way-back machine in the year 1725, smack in the middle of Christmas season, enjoyed by Bach and congregants during his third year in Leipzig. The court poet Georg Christian Lehms supplied the texts for these pieces from a collection published in 1711.

Disc No. 34 in Suzuki’s series of Bach cantatas brings him well over halfway through the list. Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern (BWV 1) is one of the more familiar works, first recorded by Karl Ristenpart for Archiv in mono, while the other two first appeared in the early stereo era under Wolfgang Gönnenwein and Karl Richter. All three were part of Bach’s 1725 cycle of chorale cantatas that were based on hymns, a cycle that ended incomplete with BWV 1. The opening and closing chorales in this work are Philipp Nicolai’s hymn (set to a medieval text) and make a splendid effect, a deliberate choice to lead off the published collected works.

Eric Chafe, "Analyzing Bach Cantatas"
O-rd U….ty Press | ISBN: 0195161823 | 2003 | PDF | 305 pages | 19,69 mb

Bach's cantatas are among the highest achievements of Western musical art, yet studies of the individual cantatas that are both illuminating and detailed are few. In this book, noted Bach expert Eric Chafe combines theological, historical, analytical, and interpretive approaches to the cantatas to offer readers and listeners alike the richest possible experience of these works. A respected theorist of seventeenth-century music, Chafe is sensitive to the composer's intentions and to the enduring and universal qualities of the music itself.

Recorded in the City of London in 2012, this album features the missing cantatas from the Bach Cantata Pilgrimage: the Ascension Cantatas. They were recorded live at St Giles Cripplegate (one of the original Pilgrimage venues) in two concerts entirely funded by the generosity of hundreds of donors across the world, following a heartfelt appeal from British comedian Alexander Armstrong.

18 years and 55 discs later, a great adventure is brought to a close. The chronological approach adopted by Suzuki means that the three works included here are the last extant cantatas by Bach’s hand.
This series has been a landmark recording project for BIS and is released to coincide with the label's 40th anniversary. Throughout the series, individual volumes have regularly picked up ‘choice’ awards from the major music magazines as well as numerous appearances in the UK classical chart.

As the penultimate volume in the acclaimed cycle recorded by Masaaki Suzuki and his Bach Collegium Japan sees the light of day, it is a sobering thought that as many as a hundred of Bach's church cantatas may have been lost. The exact number would be difficult to ascertain, but what we do know is that Bach probably composed at least one more complete set of cantatas – for the church year of 1728-29 – and of this set only nine are extant. The fragment Ehre sei Gott in der Höhe, BWV197a, apparently intended for Christmas Day of 1728, is one of these.
