No fewer than three Bachs—father and two sons—and three wonderful versions of the Magnificat written over the course of the eighteenth century: one setting very familiar, the other two much less so.

Hyperion Records CDA68157  @ £14.25*

Gramophone Editor’s Choice February 2018 For [JS’s] perennial masterpiece, Jonathan Cohen and Arcangelo snap into their festive sparklers with grand authority and lithe ebullience, sweeping effortlessly from verse to verse with considerable purpose…Arcangelo’s voyage into the sons’ Magnificats is no less well paced or astutely textured…Cohen and Arcangelo bring us an illuminated Bachian constellation of three canticles colliding in captivating relief.”

The Observer Cohen “…drives uplifting, beautifully phrased performances, with crisp playing and fine singing from Arcangelo. Even if you already have JS Bach’s Magnificat on disc, you’ll discover you need this too.”
