An Evening with Bach – Voices of Music

Ensemble Voices of Music - Archivio Magnatune

Based on the creative vision of directors David Tayler and Hanneke van Proosdij, the Voices of Music ensemble takes the view that Renaissance and Baroque music should be centered around the very finest singing—a philosophy that really shines through on An Evening With Bach. Along with the transcendent, instantly recognizable instrumentals of the opener, “Air on a G string,” this album contains some truly lilting vocal performances. Susanne Ryden’s soprano sounds amazing and weightless on tracks like “Bist du bei mir,” while Jennifer Lane’s rich alto serves as ideal counterpoint on more somber ones such as “Es is vollbracht.” This recording features some of the world’s finest early musicians and rightly showcases their talents on several purely instrumental selections, including Bach’s “Prelude in G Major” played on solo theorbo instead of cello—a lovely choice.
