Music - Classical & Opera
Oxford Bach Soloists: Sanctus
A stirring Sanctus in C major, and three cantatas with big statements: BWV 179 preaches against hypocrisy with marvelous directness; BWV 77 illustrates the second of Jesus’ two commandments recounted in the gospel narratives – to ‘love thy neighbour as thyself’ – in a potent musical doctrine foreshadowing Brahms’s German Requiem; and BWV 69a enjoins us to praise the Lord and ‘do not forget what good He has done for you!’ with brilliant trumpet trills and vigorous arpeggios.
