Info for Bach: Cantatas, Vol. 55

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.

…Gloria in excelsis, glory to God in the highest…may not technically be a cantata…but it rounds off the series in superb style, especially as its Christmas-related text makes it appropriate for the forthcoming season.“ (Geoffrey Molyneux, MusicWeb International)

„Amid the devastation after the Kobe earthquake of January 1995, the Chapel of the Kobe Shoin Women’s University provided the peaceful recording venue for Masaaki Suzuki’s first of 55 discs of Bach Cantatas. Eighteen years later, this last CD is the pinnacle of an outstanding achievement.“ (BBC Music Magazine)

„This final volume highlights the maturing sense, as witnessed especially in the latter half of the series, of Bach Collegium Japan’s growing stature and confidence to break free of generic convention towards ever greater interpretative character. The best is as good as anyone anywhere – and the whole, of the six complete cantata sets, probably the most consistent.“ (Gramophone)
