Vergnügte Ruh

New

In addition to cantatas for soprano and bass solo, J.S.Bach also composed three alto solo cantatas during his long career as an organist, cantor and composer. Together with the orchestra of Collegium Vocale playing one to a part, the English countertenor Alex Potter brings two of these beautiful works together in this blissful programme. Bach with Herreweghe; nothing less than food for the soul!
