Acclaimed singer Teddy Tahu Rhodes brings his wonderful artistry and rich voice to these beautiful bass arias by the great master, JS Bach. The complete cantata No. 82 'Ich habe genug' is joined by joyous duets with soprano Sara Macliver, and highlights from the St Matthew Passion and well-known cantatas such as 'Sleepers Wake' and 'Now Thank We All Our God'. Heartfelt performances create an exceptional atmosphere of peace. Tracks include that eternal testament to faithful love: 'Bist du bei mir'.

"Mr. Rhodes is a most expressive singer, whose deep bass hues are combined with the clarity and slight edge of the higher baritone register to result in a voice of both total authority and remarkable beauty...His is the perfect voice for Bach" - MusicWeb International
