"'Soar joyfully aloft' is for the first Sunday in Advent, first performed in 1731, but had it beginnings as a cantata for the birthday of a teacher as early as 1725, and then recycled yet again in a shorter form as a prequel to this edition. It is an exuberant work with some wonderful oboe d'amore passages. Bach divided the piece into two sections, and at almost a half hour it makes for a substantial introduction to the Christmas season. Suzuki and company continue their excellent work in this superb series, easily the best- sounding of the complete, fuller-chorus versions currently going, done in excellent surround sound. Not much else to say here except keep it coming!"
Schwingt freudig euch empor, BWV 36
Wer sich selbst erhohet, der soll erniedriget werden, BWV 47
Wer weiss, wie nahe mir mein Ende!, BWV 27
