J. S. Bach Magnificat in D Major Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 Christ lag in Todesbanden Cantata No. 4

These three enormously popular masterworks from among Bach’s prodigious outpouring of sacred and secular works, form a splendid tapestry of Baroque musical style at its pinnacle. Few works can come close to the sacred fervor, solemnity and sheer melodic eloquence of the Easter cantata, Christ lag in Todesbanden. The Fifth Brandenburg Concerto is a riot of virtuoso playing, joyous melodic craftsmanship and sublime contrapuntal invention. And, finally, the Magnificat, an astonishing amalgamation of beauty, power and exuberance, full of ever-changing moods and tonal colors, and elegantly and concisely fashioned. The “splendor of the Baroque” at its most splendid!
