Recorded in one of the final concerts of the Academy’s ever-popular Bach Cantatas series, this is the adagio tenor aria from JS Bach’s Es erhub sich ein Streit, BWV 19. The cantata was composed in Leipzig in 1726 and is the second of the three extant for the Feast of Saint Michael.

Philippe Herreweghe, winner of the 2016 Academy Bach Prize, conducts the ensemble of historical instruments.
