Fürchte dich nicht
Motets by Johann Sebastian and Johann Christoph Bach
 
Elements of JS Bach’s motet style can be traced back to the previous generation of his family, when his father’s cousins Johann Christoph and Johann Michael Bach experimented with soprano chorale cantus firmus and audacious harmonic language at the service of the text. Alongside Johann Sebastian’s well-known masterpieces, Solomon’s Knot perform a number of works by the ‘profund' and 'expressive’ Johann Christoph, as JSB himself did in Leipzig in the final years of his life.
