Bach’s cantatas form an inexhaustibly rich corpus of the highest musical inspiration, embracing all the compositional tendencies of his time and thus of his own music. The two masterpieces coupled here invite us to measure his evolution over a decade. In Weimar, with the Cantata BWV 21, we see him in a period of experimentation, turning to the model of Buxtehude to express a vivid pietism. In Leipzig, with the Cantata BWV 76, we sense the mastery of a composer using all his resources in a vertiginous synthesis to the glory of God.

There is no shortage of performances of the two Bach cantatas on this release by the Ricercar Consort and the Collegium Vocale Gent, under the direction of gambist Philippe Perlot. They are two of the most imposing among Bach’s examples of the form, with two large sections, a variety of movement types and elaborate orchestration, and Bach strove to impress with both. Good readings are available in cycles by conductors John Eliot Gardiner, Masaaki Suzuki, and others, but there’s a lot to be said for Perlot’s approach, which has been developed over a deliberate set of recordings of cantatas that have something to say to each other. Here, he chooses cantatas that show Bach wrestling with the contrast of music that embodies the public side of worship with the private, pietistic side so common in earlier cantatas like the Cantata No. 21 (“Ich hatte viel Bekümmernis”), BWV 21. In that 1713 work, Bach gives the chorus a lot to do, setting it in contrast with emotionally intense arias to which the singers here, especially countertenor Carlos Mena, do full justice. The Cantata No. 76 (“Die Himmel erzählen die Ehre Gottes”), BWV 76, from ten years later, the choruses are returned to their usual place at the beginning and end of each section, but the range of moods for the soloists is expanded. It adds up to an unusually detailed and musically skilled exploration of these cantatas and to an album to which listeners will return repeatedly. The rich instrumental work is ideally backed by Mirare engineers working in Belgium’s Eglise de Beaufays.
