Johann Sebastian Bach:
Magnificat in D major, BMV 243

Johann Christian Bach:
Magnificat in C major, E 22

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach:
Magnificat in D major, H 772
No fewer than three Bachs father and two sons and three wonderful versions of the Magnificat written over the course of the eighteenth century: one setting very familiar, the other two much less so.

Three Bach Magnificats, three generations, three different aesthetic outlooks. The intricately wrought High Baroque idiom of J S Bach’s famous work was already outmoded by 1749, when his second son Carl Philipp Emanuel composed a Magnificat in which vestiges of the Baroque rub shoulders with the North German empfindsamer Stil (literally, ‘sensitive style’). The brief final stile antico fugue apart, the Magnificat of Emanuel’s younger half-brother Johann Christian breathes the language of Italianate galanterie, where the boundaries between sacred and profane are often blurred. Call it sibling rivalry, but Emanuel once reportedly complained that Johann Christian’s music ‘fills the ear but leaves the heart empty’: an unfair jibe, but understandable from a composer out of sympathy with the prevailing worldly galant style, whose credo was that music should not merely entertain but ‘touch the heart’ and ‘awaken the passions’.

Recorded in St Mary the Virgin and St Mary Magdalen, Tetbury, Gloucestershire, on 4-6 October 2015
