Volume 24 brings live recordings from the Schlosskirche in Altenburg (featuring the famous Trost organ that Bach himself was invited to ‘test’ when it was newly built) and from St Mary’s in Warwick.

The three cantatas are concerned with the sorrow surrounding Jesus’ farewell to his followers, the trials that await them in his absence and their joyful thoughts of seeing him again. The cantatas for Jubilate cover a wide gamut of styles and moods and tease new meanings out of the Gospel texts. From the starkness and searing pathos of BWV 12 Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen to the astonishing superimposition of opposing moods in BWV 103 Ihr werdet weinen und heulen, and culminating in a searing performance of BWV 146 Wir müssen durch viel Trübsal, based on the famous D minor keyboard concerto, this release provides another example of glorious singing and playing – the vocal soloists, the Monteverdi Choir, the English Baroque Soloists and Sir John Eliot Gardiner all at their very best.
