David Daniels discusses his recording of Bach Sacred Arias & Cantatas.

He lends his beautiful countertenor voice and immense musicianship to this programme of famous cantatas, namely ‘Ich habe genug’, and arias from Bachs Mass in B minor and the St Matthew and St John Passions. The programme was recorded in London in September 2007.

“The English Concert, a natural choice for this repertoire, don’t disappoint with their crisp, vibrant performance.” BBC review, Charlotte Gardner 2010
