Bach: Advent cantatas
Gardiner has chosen to present two programmes of cantatas in two concerts corresponding to two different themes of liturgy, to give each cycle its specific meaning. The exceptional quality of the choir, unequaled in this repertoire, and Gardiner’s inspiration in the Protestant cantatas he knows so intimately, will give us access to Bach’s spiritual emotion.
Cantate BWV 36 Schwingt Freudig
