Today it is the Passions of J.S Bach which are most commonly known. The Passion Oratorio by J.S Bach’s nephew, godson and pupil Johann Ernst Bach is lesser known. On this Capriccio re-release his Passion Oratorio is performed alongside an Ode on the 77th Psalm for tenor, chorus and orchestra and a Motet for solo voices, four-part chorus, strings and continuo. --- mdt.co.uk

 

The Bach family have many members with Johann Ernst (1722-1777) being the nephew, godson and pupil of the more illustrious Johann Sebastian. Born in Eisenach he was the son of Johann Bernhard Bach, the second cousin of J S, whom he eventually succeeded as Eisenach's organist and court harpsichordist.

The Passionsoratorium differs from the Passions of J S in both style and size, lasting just over 90 minutes. It is a more intimate work than the big Passions of his uncle, calling for four soloists, 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, strings and bass continuo. The influence of his uncle can be clearly heard in the work, whilst it is employs the prevalent style of the time, with this mix of old and new creating an attractive whole.

The Ode on the 77th Psalm, Das Vertrauen der Christen auf Got, is a 16 minute mini masterpiece for tenor, chorus and orchestra, While the final piece on this two CD set, Meine Seele erhebt den Herr, is a Motet for soloists, four-part chorus, strings and bass continuo. The Motet, as with the Passion, shows the influence of his uncle, but also, as with the Passion, Johann Ernst shows himself to be his own man, influenced by other in producing his own voice.

The performances throughout are on the whole excellent, Christoph Pregardien deserves a special mention, especially for his singing in the Ode, the only drawback being the counter tenor David Cordier, whose voice, whilst being good is not as strong as some, and sounds to be at the edge of his range at times. Once again the chorus and orchestra are on top form, with Hermann Max controlling the proceedings well.

The notes are good, and whilst the texts of the works are provided, they are unfortunately only in German, which is a real shame, as this would have aided the listener's enjoyment of the music.

This is an important set, and one which, while there are issues, with the counter tenor and lack of translations, they are not enough for me not to still recommend whole heartedly! --- Stuart Sillitoe, amazon.com
