J. S. Bach – Cantatas, vol. 26
BWV 96, 122 and 180
Bach Collegium Japan
Masaaki Suzuki director
In 2003, Tim went over to Japan to give concerts in Tokyo and Kobe with this world renowned period instrument ensemble and choir - some of them to audiences in their thousands! Whilst in the southern city of Kobe, in the chapel of the Women's University, they recorded a disc of three cantatas for Volume 26 of the Bach Cantata series that their director Masaaki Suzukihad begun in the late 1990's. As is the tradition and intentions that J.S.Bach used, as a soloist, Tim sang in the choir, as well as the recitative solos in Cantata's BWV 180 and 96, and in the trio aria of Cantata BWV 122.
