"A pleasing sequel to the first volume of Bach’s secular cantatas, with extremely able soloists and instrumentalists who are capable of great delicacy of phrasing and who are a joy to listen to."
- MusicWeb International

"Four Stars ... Sophie Junker is a personable Diana to tenor Makoto Sakurada's youthfully lyrical Endymion. Best of all is baritone Roderick Williams's Pan who renders the outrageous toadying distinctly palatable. Suzuki shapes everything with his trademark light touch, if he's sometimes inclined to under-characterize the drama."
- BBC Music Magazine

"... brilliantly caught, from the casting of the four characters to the exceptional continuo work, led by Suzuki himself. Makoto Sakurada (as Endymion) conveys the ensnaring potential of love with friendly caution, while Pan (the ever-communicative Roderick Williams) delivers the first feel-good excursion in celebrating our Prince as Pan of his country."
- Gramophone

Bach Collegium Japan and Masaaki Suzuki present their highly-acclaimed second volume of secular cantatas by J.S. Bach, released in 2012. The album spotlights the talents of sopranos Sophie Junker and Joanne Lunn, tenor Makoto Sakurada and baritone Roderick Williams.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
