The 16-voice membership of the Bach Collegium Japan is optimal, and the Baroque instrumentalists, especially the brasses, have the precision that's happily typical of the series. All four cantatas presented here, although not the most splendid ones in the canon, are substantial pieces evidently intended for some kind of public event, and it is in the big outer choruses, with chorale melodies threaded so artfully into places where it hardly seems possible that they could appear, that Suzuki is at his best, with superbly clear textures.

This critically lauded 24th volume in the expansive Bach cantata project undertaken by Masaaki Suzuki and Bach Collegium Japan includes three of the sacred works Bach wrote in 1724 for "ordinary" Sunday services. Though they marked non-feast days, these cantatas hold interest in that they stand as examples of Bach's use of the Lutheran hymnbook, as opposed to gospel passages, all expertly performed by the Collegium with the polish audiences have come to expect. 4. kHz, 24-bit PCM – BIS Studio Masters.
Bach Collegium Japan's deservedly acclaimed project to record all of Bach's cantatas has reached volume 51, which turns out to be an especially vibrant and generously filled collection of sacred occasional works.
