This is a reissue of a recording made in 1988 and first released the following year. It combines two works by the next to youngest son of JS Bach. Johann Christoph Friedrich Bach (1732-95) was born in Leipzig, instructed in music by his father, and sang in the St Thomas Choir.
sophistication is found with…Johann Christoph Friedrich. His large-scale setting of Johann Gottfried Herder’s ‘Biblical painting’ The Childhood of Christ sees yet another confident performance from the incomparable Barbara Schlick and from Harry van der Kamp.
