“Sound, ye drums! Ring out, ye trumpets!” In his Leipzig years, Bach liked to remind people that he was not only Kantor of St Thomas’s, but also the city’s director of music. It was in this capacity that he wrote these sumptuous secular cantatas, in honour respectively of the university professor Kortte (BWV 207, 1726) and of Queen Maria Josepha (BWV 214, 1733). Allegorical figures such as Industry, Fortune, Honour and Gratitude take it in turns to sing of the learning and the merits of the recipients, borrowing material from one of the Brandenburg Concertos or ‘quoting’ some of the finest music from the Christmas Oratorio, not yet composed…”…fine contributions from Carolyn Sampson, Peter Kooy – their duet in BWV 207 comes over with light-footed charm – and Mark Padmore whose declamation of recitative is outstanding. Instrumental playing is mainly excellent…” (BBC Music Magazine)

“In recasting the third movement of the third Brandenburg Concerto for No 207, the tone is set for something compelling and moving. Philippe Herreweghe is equal to both with a performance of elegance and due restraint. Tönwt is the original source for movements which Bach was to recondition for the Christmas Oratorio. …Herreweghe pitches the work just right, with consummate performances from the radiant Sampson (probably her best Bach work to date) and the soft-grained focus of contralto Ingeborg Danz.” (Gramophone Magazine)
