Ich habe genug is a timeless, transcendental masterpiece: a profound expression of Christian faith at the very end of life. It demands artistry of a special order, and Iestyn Davies now joins the likes of Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and Lorraine Hunt Lieberson in the work's distinguished discography. The couplings are equally ravishing performances of two other great solo cantatas, while the two orchestral sinfonias which complete the album will prove refreshingly familiar.

Director/harpsichordist Jonathan Cohen and his elite period ensemble Arcangelo have shaped this engrossing disc, of three Bach cantatas and two instrumental Sinfonias, around the British countertenor Iestyn Davies. Two of the cantatas (BWV 170, Vergnügte Ruh', beliebte Seelenlust, with its tender, lullaby-like opening, and BWV 54, Widerstehe doch der Sünde, a spicy, energetic challenge to the devil and all his works) were written for alto voice. The best known of the three, BWV 82, Ich habe genug, was originally for bass voice, reworked for soprano. Davies's singular gifts of open-hearted expression, reined in to perfection and with no excess or indulgence, are expertly balanced by Arcangelo's prominent solo musicians. Early in the year, a favourite disc already.
