The glorious voices of Karina Gauvin and Daniel Taylor and the refined playing of Les Violons du Roy will resound wonderfully thanks to this hybrid SACD–Surround/Stereo recording, bringing to life Bach’s little-known homage to Pergolesi: the motet “Tilge, Höchster, meine Sünden” after the Italian composer’s famed Stabat Mater. As always with Bach the transcriber, he didn’t simply copy the original work wholesale, but carefully adapted it to its new German and Lutheran text (Psalm 51), enriching for example the basso-continuo and adding an independent viola part. This makes for a denser vision of the music and very compelling listening. Also by Bach, Cantata 82 “Ich habe genug,” which was very popular as attested by its variously scored arrangements, is presented here in a version with soprano and solo flute instead of the original with bass and oboe.
