The Reformation and Johann Sebastian Bach

Description

Excerpts from some of Bach's major sacred works. ('We celebrate the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation with the music of J. S. Bach. The Bachs were Lutherans for whom adherence to and sacrifice for the faith were important. The rhythm and activity of Bach’s life and work was primarily determined by the liturgical year, so our selection from his works also follows this order: Advent – Christmas – Easter – Pentecost – The Feast of the Trinity. Bach wrote the following sentence on the margin of his Bible: “In the prayerful, sacred music of the believer, God is always present with his grace.” Perhaps we are not mistaken or are even closer to truth if we listen to the works of Johann Sebastian Bach as an answer to God’s word with the certainty of faith. The recording closes with Bach’s Setting of the Lord’s Prayer set on Luther’s chorale. This album has been released with the recommendation of the Hungarian Reformation Memorial Committee'. Featured artists include Attila Fulop [tenor], Capella Savaria, Ernst Schramm [bass], Gabor Lehotka [organ], Jozsef Reti [tenor], Julia Hamari [contralto], Kolos Kovats [bass], László Polgár [bass], Magda Kalmar [soprano], Maria Zadori [soprano] and Miklós Spányi [organ].
