The Feast day of St. Michael and all Angels--known as Michaelmas Day in the Lutheran Church calendar, and the celebratory day of the autumn equinox, inspired J.S. Bach to write three of his most ingenious Cantatas--BWV 19, 130, and 149. The texts chosen by Bach derive mostly from the Book of Revelations 12: 7-12, and center around the final battle waged by the Archangel Michael against the malevolent serpent of the garden, represented by an ancient reptilian dragon.

The excellent period ensemble Montreal Baroque, led by Eric Milnes, performs all three cantatas on this release: which makes up volume 2 of a projected cantata cycle. While scholars often consider these cantatas to be among Bach's finest, with their picturesque musical settings, curiously they remain among Bach's lesser known choral masterpieces. At present there is only one other recording in the catalogue where all three cantatas have been assembled on a single disc, and that comes in volume 7 of John Eliot Gardiner's complete survey: Cantatas, Vol. 7. Unlike Milnes, Gardiner includes the one movement BWV 50, a stunning work for double choir, which is thought to be part of a now lost or unfinished 'Michael' cantata.

The other main difference between Milnes and Gardiner is that Milnes has chosen to perform the cantatas one-voice-to-a-part: which means that the choral movements are sung by a quartet of soloists, rather than a large choir--which in Gardiner's case is the twenty person Monteverdi choir.

... you'd better take your vitamins and follow your exercise regimen, in order to live long enough to buy all 200+ cantatas performed by the ensemble Montreal Baroque! At this time, they're released four CDs with three cantatas on each of them, and they started recording at least five years ago. But the good news here is that they're "doing it right", giving each cantata its due in rehearsal polish and interpretation. Honestly, I wouldn't recommend any of "Complete Bach" editions currently on the market, chiefly because the cantatas are clunky and sound under-rehearsed on most of them. Here's my suggestion: make a check list of the cantatas, like a bird-watcher makes of species, and then shop around for individual performances. Use the 'samples', read the reviews, pick and choose, and eventually you'll have a collection far more worthy of the composer's genius than any of the complete sets. That's not a radical suggestion, is it? After all, you're unlike to listen to all the cantatas one after another, or even to hear all of them fully in one mere lifetime. Hey, old JS could write music faster than most of us can hear.

And if you do pick out the best of Bach's cantatas one by one, I'm sure you'll be choosing some of these recordings by Montreal Baroque. I've heard 'em all, my friends. There are numerous glorious performances on CD, conducted by Gardiner, Koopman, Suzuki, Leonhardt, Harnoncourt ... though I'd advise you to shun Helmut Rilling. Montreal Baroque conductor Eric Milnes doesn't yet enjoy the fame of those guys, but his orchestra is as proficient as any of theirs, and his soloists are especially adept at Bach's challenging almost-instrumental vocal lines.
