J. S. Bach: The Complete Motets – Digital Download

$8.99 (Digital Download)

Bach’s seven motets represent the continuation of a long and distinguished tradition of vocal composition, dating back to the late medieval works of Dufay. Bach’s motets represent the apogee of the genre and are his most demanding vocal works. The present recording is the first in a new series with the musical forces of Trinity Wall Street, conducted by Julian Wachner. It is released to commemorate the 10th anniversary of September 11, 2001.
