Bach: Countertenor Arias

Schütz Erbarm dich mein, O Herre Gott
Bach Widerstehe doch der Sünde, BWV54
Erlebach Overture No. 6 in G minor
Erlebach Trocknet euch ihr heissen Zahren
Bach Orchestral Suite No. 1 in C major, BWV1066
Bach Vergnügte Ruh, beliebte Seelenlust, BWV170

Widely celebrated as one of the greatest countertenors of his generation, York-born Iestyn Davies joins the Dunedin Consort in two of Bach’s most intimate church cantatas. The elegant poetry of Vergnügte Ruh, beliebte Seelenlust and startling intensity of Widerstehe doch der Sünde are paired with works by two of Bach’s most important predecessors, whose music glows with the same easy contrapuntal fluidity and expressive detail. One of Bach’s sparkling Orchestral Suites completes this rich and intricate picture of the German Baroque.
