Catherine King and the NBO perform a fascinating collection of arias by J.S. Bach, framed within the movements of his B minor orchestral suite, to create an unusual and attractive Baroque song cycle.

Originally released in 2001, J.S. Bach: Alto Arias has been re-issued as part of Linn's ECHO series which offers a second chance to enjoy the best of the label's award-winning catalogue.

'Catherine King's subtle elaboration breathes tenderness, nobility and dignity into this exquisite music.' HMV Choice

'King exhibiting her pleasingly resonant timbre with great assurance in ‘Zum reinen Wasser' from Cantata 112.' Gramophone


Comprising some of Bach's most beautiful works for alto, this is essentially a posthumous overview - and exhibition - of certain aspects of Bach's creative life.Two arias (Buss und Reu and Erbarme Dich) are drawn from the Matthew Passion, two (Wo zwei und drei versammlet sind and Zum reinen Wasser) from Eastertide cantatas and the Agnus Dei is from his most spectacular choral work: the B minor mass.

Bach reserved some of the most life-changing music he wrote for the alto voice, possibly inspired to greater heights by his wife Anna Magdalena, who was herself an accomplished alto. With the majority of Bach alto arias performed and recorded by men it is refreshing to hear Catherine King's rich alto bring new colours to these works.

The NBO is directed alternately by Julian Podger and harpsichordist Ketil Haugsand, the distinguished pupil of Gustav Leonhardt.
