About this album

Several years after his appointment in 1723 as cantor of the St Thomaskirche, Johann Sebastian Bach started work on a major collection of keyboard works under the collective name of ‘Clavier-Übung’. This collection was already published in several instalments during the 18th century, and it would ultimately grow into a standard work for every keyboard player, one which contains the essence of Bach’s keyboard artistry. In the extensive third section of the Clavier-Übung, the organ is of central importance. In addition to an imposing prelude and fugue, Bach composed 21 so- called chorale preludes for organ for this collection. Every one of them is a masterpiece, in which Bach makes use of complex polyphony, invertible counterpoint, and canonic techniques. Bach also employs a very wide range of musical styles. The chorales which Bach used were common musical property in his day, recognizable, so to speak, for any listener. Today, since this is no longer the case, the Netherlands Bach Foundation is of the opinion that it is advisable to make them available as an addition to a complete recording of the so called ‘organ mass’. The choir of the Netherlands Bach Society, conducted by Jos van Veldhoven, performs the chorales in harmonizations composed by Bach himself, but also by his predecessors including Praetorius, Hassler, Schein, and Scheidt.

Reviews

Trouw

(...) Leo van Doeselaar is an exceptionally player and eminently well suited to the challenge of lending just stature to this music. (...) (...) The Netherlands Bach Society provide a genuine rhetorical sensibility under Jos van Veldhoven, who embraces the 17th century vocal concertos with rare humility and intimacy. (...) (...) Strongly recommended. (...) Een kunstwerk (...) (...) Door de combinatie met het prachtig zingende koor wordt de relatie tussen oorspronkelijke melodie en orgelbewerking voortreffenlijk uitgewerkt.

Gramophone

(...) Leo van Doeselaar is an exceptionally accomplished player and eminently well suited to the challenge of lending just stature to this music. (...) (...) The Netherlands Bach Society Choir provide a genuine rhetorical sensibility under Jos van Veldhoven who embraces the 17th century vocal concertos with rare humility and intimacy (...) (...) This project deserves recognition well beyond the organ fraternity. Strongly recommended.

Fanfare

(...) the chorus sings accurately and enthousiastically, and maintains clean contrapuntal lines. (...) (...) Excellent sound (...) (...) Recommended alike to those who enjoy out-of-the-way Baroque choral music or who want to hear some of Bach's chorale preludes in an apposite contrext.

American Record Guide

(…) the organ performances are masterly in beautiful sound (…)

Limburgs Dagblad

(...) van Doeselaar voert deze veeleisende en afwisselende compositie op grandioze wijze uit (...) (...) het koor van de Bachvereniging zorgt voor een interessant en welluidend reliëf door de koralen waarop de orgelbewerkingen zijn gebaseerd, voorafgaande aan de orgelsolo's te presenteren. Interessant en genietbaar.

Luister

(...) Ideale combinatie: elk deel uit het Ordinarium en de Catechismus wordt voorafgegaan door de eenstemmig gezongen melodie en een meerstemmige zetting (...) Een uitmuntend liturgisch geheel (...)

Gelderland Pers

(...) van Doeselaar houdt de muziek op een briljante manier transparant (...)

Klassieke Zaken

(...) Muzikaal en evenwichtig (...) (...) Uitvoering en van grote klasse.

Volkskrant

(...) vernuftige combinatie van bloemlezing en Bach-compilatie maakt dat de muziek beter tot haar recht komt dan ze ooit in een van beide afzonderlijk zou kunnen doen.(...)
