BACH 733 & BACH 734

Soli Deo Gloria

Choruses and Chorales from Bach's Cantatas

The Ansbach Bach Festival Choir & Orchestra,
Condutcor Karl Richter

Soli Deo Gloria
To the Glory of God Alone.

It was with these words, or rather, the initials S.D.G. that Bach ended his cantata scores. We have taken this as our title for two volumes (available separately) of Bach's greatest cantata choruses and chorales. A stunning assemblage of powerful and moving works, performed with great sensitivity and vitality by the Ansbach Festival Choir and Orchestra conducted by their founder, Karl Richter.
