Soli Deo Gloria
To the Glory of God Alone.

It was with these words, or rather, the initials S.D.G. that Bach ended his cantata scores. We have taken this as the title for our ongoing series of Bach's greatest cantata choruses and chorales, this being the third volume. A stunning assemblage of powerful and moving works, in recordings from the annual Greifswald Bach Festivals.
