Penguin Guide, January 2009

Buxtehude’s sacred cantatas are in no way laden with heavy religious symbolism but are remarkably fresh. The opening Was frag’ich nach der Welt (‘What is the world to me’) has a pastoral character, and the following Jesu meine Freude is full of joy. Wenn ich, Herr Jesu, habe dich, which follows the measured string Passacaglia, is more somberly expressive in feeling, but Jubilate Domino (a solo cantata, nimbly sung here by the counter-tenor, Matthew White) demands considerable virtuosity. The concerted Wie schmeckt es so lieblich und wohl (‘How lovely and good the saviour’) is full of light-hearted praise. The performances here are pleasingly intimate, well sung (Katherine Hill, the soprano soloist in Sicut Moses, particularly fresh) and truthfully recorded. Full texts and translations are included, plus excellent documentation.
