Description
Written for choir and basso continuo, each of J.S. Bach's six sacred motets (BWV 225–230) exhibits a different structural form. Included here is a seventh, Ich lasse dich nicht, du segnest mich denn (BWV Anh 159), misattributed initially to Bach's second cousin Johann Christoph but now regarded as an early work by the master himself. These extraordinarily beautiful and powerful baroque pieces had a strong influence on later composers of vocal music and for some (e.g., Mozart), they were the gateway for discovering Bach's oeuvre.

"The present recording makes a first-rate impression in every category, from the thoughtful programming to the exemplary performances to the vibrant, clear, naturally balanced sound…. [Marcus] Creed and his Vocalconsort Berlin … give us readings that look beneath the literal surface of both music and texts—there is a slight give in the tempos, a little more shape to dynamics, and a proper acknowledgment that there's an emotional aspect to these works, whether celebratory or more solemn."—Classics Today
