‘Sleepers awake!’ arrived

The printed materials for the next Hyphen Press Music CD have arrived in the office – we assemble and shrink-wrap these CDs here. This is Sleepers awake!, in which The Bach Players perform two settings by Dieterich Buxtehude of the ‘Wachet auf’ text (‘wake up, the voice calls us’), and one by J.S. Bach – as well as some fascinating, connected extra works. The Bach cantata is one of his most glorious and irresistible: recorded many times, but never so freshly. The official release date is 1 December, just in time for the Advent season and Christmas.
