Bach’s Easter Oratorio (a re-working by Bach himself of a secular Cantata) is a substantial Cantata in eleven parts, in which the festive character of the Resurrection is caught in joyful trumpet fanfares in the first two instrumental Sinfonias.
Eloquent recitatives and intimate arias complete Bach’s musical celebration of Easter. Sung texts included.
A firm place for this powerful but somewhat neglected Oratorio in the MUSICA SACRA series!
