'Jesu meine Freude': works by Bach, Doles, Krebs and Telemann. Gordon Safari serves up no fewer than four very varied settings of one of the most popular church hymns in the latest production of his outstanding soloist ensemble BachWerkVokal. Two of them are heard here for the first time on disc which is astonishing considering the outstanding quality of the compositions by Telemann and Doles.

"Luminous vocal textures are sustained here and throughout by an eight-voice ensemble from which the two sopranos and the first bass make outstanding solo contributions." - BBC Music Magazine 5* Telemann's cantata borrows from French opera, a strikingly short chorale line is followed by a virtuoso aria. Johann Friedrich Doles was apprenticed to the great Bach. With his fusion of masterly traditional chorale and gallant elegance, his motet hints at Viennese Classicism from afar. Johann Ludwig Krebs also studied with Bach, and was even considered by his contemporaries to be his most important pupil. His cantata shows why: almost early classical arias bring a touch of bel canto to Protestant song.
