No fewer than three Bachs—father and two sons—and three wonderful versions of the Magnificat written over the course of the eighteenth century: one setting very familiar, the other two much less so.
Arcangelo performs a fascinating stylistic juxtaposition of three Magnificats by members of the Bach dynasty, with some of the world’s finest musicians and a handpicked choir, under the direction of artistic director & conductor Jonathan Cohen.
Recorded at Tetbury Festival 2015.
