In the beginning there was great scepticism towards the thesis that Bach’s sacred vocal works were originally written for solo voices. Now this interpretation is establishing itself more and more. With this edition of one cantata for each Sunday and the great feasts of the ecclesiastical year Kuijken, Sigiswald and La Petite Bande want to strengthen this new approach and prove it right by their excellent performances.
This Vol. 16 of the edition offers four cantatas, one for the three days of Pentecost and one for the Sunday after Pentecost, Trinity Sunday.

Cantata BWV34 O ewiges Feuer, O Ursprung der Liebe
