Aus der Tiefen: Out of the Deep – Cantatas by J Christoph & J S Bach

Herr, wende dich und sei mir gnädig J C Bach
Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen J S Bach (BWV 12)
Ach dass ich Wassers genug hätte J C Bach
Es ist nun aus J C Bach
Aus der Tiefen J S Bach (BWV 131)

Two of JS Bach’s celebrated Cantatas are here programmed alongside three works by his lesser-known forebear Johann Christoph Bach (1642–1703). As the late lamented Richard Campbell observed…

“Perhaps we do him no disservice in acknowledging his claim to be seen as one of the deepest tributary streams to the great river of music that was to flow from the pen of Johann Sebastian Bach.”
