Product Description

Amazon.com

The latest in John Eliot Gardiner's Bach Cantata Pilgrimage series, Volume 15 concentrates on four cantatas for the Third Day of Christmas. Recorded on December 27, 2000, in New York's St. Bartholomew Church, these works, so different from one another in texture, are presented in a warm, realistic, not-very-churchy ambiance: BWV 64, concentrating on God's Love, features a trombone choir that underlines and supports the choir like a pillar of strength; 151, a far more private utterance about personal comfort, has lovely work for flute and oboe d'amore; BWV 57 is the least adorned, a dialogue between Jesus and the Soul scored only for strings and three oboes, each doubling a violin; and 133 is an expressive of sheer joy at Christmas. As usual, the performances are stunning--heartfelt (the soprano's portrayal of the Soul in No. 57 is filled with high drama), always in tune, alternately joyous and pious. This is a fine entry into the Christmas season. --Robert Levine

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By DAVID BRYSON VINE VOICE on September 15, 2007
Format: Audio CD
This volume of John Eliot Gardiner's year-long `pilgrimage' through the Bach cantatas contains, on one disc, four works that the master produced for the feast of St John the Evangelist, 27 December, over the years 1723 to 1725. The locus chosen this time was St Bartholemew's church in New York, and the concert we are given was the second last of the entire programme.

As in the other issues that I have so far collected from this admirable series, there is no hint that the performers are tired or demob-happy, and none that the recording technicians experience any difficulty in adjusting to yet another acoustic. None of the works here was previously familiar to me, and any sense that I might have been remiss in this matter was at least eased on learning that these cantatas were not very well known to the performers either. I'm not sure whether I am surprised or not by the stylistic command and technical proficiency that meets me here again. I had predicted it with confidence, but it is surely astonishing all the same. The solo vocal work is shared out among no fewer than three sopranos, together with two male altos and a single tenor and bass. The male altos are very easy on the ear (not something I have always found elsewhere), but the entire ensemble, instrumental and choral as well as the soloists, is admirable. No doubt in years to come there will be other distinguished accounts of this and that Bach cantata - indeed there are quite a few already - but whatever the future competition in the four presented here you could not possibly go wrong with this disc.

The format is the familiar one.

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By GEORGE RANNIE on November 29, 2006
Format: Audio CD
This 10th release (volume15) is actually (not notated as such)the second part of volume14 which was released earlier this year. Being recorded in 2000 in New York City at the St. Bartholomew church. As usual, John Gardiner, the Monteverdi Choir and The English Baroque Soloist playing on "original" instruments are splendid. To be honest, up to listening to this recording, I was rather "Bah Humbug" about the holiday season of 2006. After listening to Volume 15, I find myself in a far more festive mood. The works contained in Volume 15 are indeed reflective of the season being lively and spirited. Gardiner and his forces certainly perform them that way. .

The works comprising this volume are more of J.S. Bach's cantatas composed for the Christmas season that are not performed too often, for some strange reason. . I particularly loved the "Dialogue" Cantata for soprano and bass as the Soul and Jesus. It's is as close to operatic writing as we get from Johann. The virtuosic aria for bass on tract 18 is splendidly sung by bass Peter Harvey--he is really good. Likewise, the soprano's aria from this Cantata is also a delight. Joanne Lunn the soprano soloist performs it magnificently.

This volume also includes the rather recently (I believe) discovered cantata "Ich freue mich in dir" written in 1724. Gardiner and his forces give it a wonderfully spirited reading closing this set of J.S. Bach's Cantatas that were written for the third day after Christmas in a wonderful manner.

Volume 15 of Gardiner's Bach Pilgrimage has certainly helped to put me more in the "Holiday spirit". It is a wonderful recording.

This is supposed to be a shorter Sunday, with only one disc instead of normally two discs of music. But the singing sounded uneven to my ears.
