"All in all, these are first-class renditions recorded in good sound" - BBC Music Magazine 

Gardiner's Gramophone and BBC Music Magazine award-winning Bach Cantata series on his hugely successful label, Soli Deo Gloria, releases volume 4 in the series featuring Cantatas for the Sixth and Seventh Sunday after Trinity. Recorded live in July and August 2000. 

Following a moving concert commemorating the 250th anniversary of Bach's death, set within the magical surroundings of the Scottish island of Iona, John Eliot Gardiner, The Monteverdi Choir and The English Baroque Soloists continue on their Bach pilgrimage and head to Ansbach to perform at the prestigious Ansbach Bach Festival - “The Mecca…of Bach celebrations” as described by Gardiner. The programme includes BWV 9 Es ist das Heil uns kommen her (Salvation has come to us) and the well known chamber cantata BWV 170 Vergnügte Ruh, beliebte Seelenlust (Pleasant Rest, Beloved Soul's Joy), expertly sung by internationally renowned counter-tenor, Michael Chance. This is the first of two solo cantatas for alto that Bach wrote in the summer of 1726 and comprises of the three large arias for alto, between which are placed two recitatives. A highlight of the three is the first, an aria of pure enchantment, which tells, through rich and passionate music, that “pleasant rest” can be attained only though union with heaven. The programme ends with the very moving funeral motet Der Gerechte kommt um (See, the righteous must die), attributed to Bach, an incredibly beautiful five-voiced Latin motet composed by Johann Kuhnau. The magnificence of this motet made this very popular with both the choir and orchestra thereby resulting in it being used as a regular encore on the Bach Cantata pilgrimage. 

Thirty miles east from the hustle and bustle of a busy Edinburgh hosting its world famous festival, we join John Eliot and the Monteverdi forces in the collegiate church of St. Mary's situated in the modest, tranquil market town of Haddington, Scotland. BWV 186 Ärgre dich, o Seele, nicht (Trouble thyself not, O soul), comprises eleven movements and is structured in two parts. A movement that stands out is the glorious duet for soprano and alto (No.10), in which the crucial injunction 'Sei, Seele, getreu!' ('O soul, be true!') is reserved until the last two bars. We then hear BWV 107 Was willst du dich betrüben (Why wilt thou trouble thyself, oh my dear soul), a chorale cantata set per omnes versus, that is, with all the verses of a hymn set unaltered. The final chorale, BWV 187 Es wartet alles auf dich (They are all waiting on thee) is again structured in two parts and comprises of music that is both gentle and seductively beautiful. Bach parodies the music of this cantata a decade later in his G minor Missa (BWV 235).
