Florilegium are joined by the soprano Katharine Fuge in two sacred cantatas by Bach from their award winning recording on the Channel Classics label. Demonstrating how Bach frequently re-arranged his music, this programme contains three works that exist in different forms. The Trio sonata in G major exists as a sonata for viola da gamba and obligato harpsichord, the cantata “Ich Habe Genug” also exists as a cantata for bass, and finally the concerto for two recorders and harpsichord is a transcription of Brandenburg Concerto no.4. In this version the harpsichord plays the original violin part and it is the final work in his set of six harpsichord concertos.
