Thirty years after their acclaimed recording for Erato, Sir John Eliot Gardiner and the Monteverdi Choir return to the Bach Motets in a new SDG recording, recorded last year at a London concert. The Motets can be seen as some of Bach’s most perfect and hypnotic compositions. Due to their extraordinary complexity and density, they require exceptional virtuosity and sensitivity of all the performers. The album is packaged in a 44 page booklet with original notes by John Eliot Gardiner and texts in German, English, and French.

SDG Records
Soli Deo Gloria is offering the track "Ich lasse dich nicht, du segnest mich denn, BWV Anh. 159" from Bach Motets for SFCV readers to download and enjoy.
