Festival Baroque4stars

At the gala performance of J.S. Bach's Mass in B Minor in Ottawa on January 31, 2005, Daniel Taylor, Patron of the Ottawa Bach Choir, announced that the choir has released its first CD, entitled Festival Baroque. The disc features Schütz' magnificent work, Musikalische Exequien; one of Bach’s most beautiful cantatas, BWV 150, Nach dir, Herr, verlanget mich, Telemann's motet, Das ist meine Freude and the cantata, Der Herr ist mit mir, by Buxtehude.


This CD is no longer available


"Barely three years old, the choir has achieved a level of musical excellence rarely found in a first CD, said Dr. Lisette Canton, Founder and Artistic Director of The Ottawa Bach Choir, "The choir sings with great musical sensitivity and a remarkable technique that transcends the music on the page, and moves the listener to great joy. We are very proud of this first CD – the first of many to come."
