Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    62:36
This seventh volume in the series of Bach's secular cantatas from Bach Collegium Japan and Masaaki Suzuki features the ever popular Peasant Cantata, written in broad dialect and set to music based around folk songs, making it accessible to the general population rather than just the educated elite. The soprano cantata Non sa che sia dolore was composed as a musical farewell to one of Bach’s students, while the final piece Amore traditore for bass solo includes a distinct closing aria, utilizing both the voice and the harpsichord in virtuosic passages.

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!
