Synopsis

Product Description
Performance with solo voices has become the trademark of Cantus Cölln. In this recording of Bach s B minor Mass it should not be seen as a dogmatic position, but rather as an alternative style of interpretation. It allows the often extremely complicated contrapuntal web of Bach s polyphonic style to be presented with great clarity, illuminating many passages that are usually drowned in generalized sonic exhilaration. In such movements as the Et incarnatus and Crucifixus the personal emotional statement becomes much more individual and striking. What is more, the altered performing conditions result in new, unexpected and surprising balances and sonorities.
