Cantate: the Troubadors of the Pacific Boychoir

This groundbreaking recording by the Pacific Boychoir may be the first ever recording of Bach's Cantata 150 as Bach would have heard it: with boy sopranos and altos singing all soprano and alto chorus and solo parts. Director Kevin Fox assembles early music specialists on tenor and bass and a period-instrument ensemble at Baroque pitch.

Boy soprano soloists Julian Abelskamp and Jacob Wilson are featured throughout the album, showing the power of trained boys' voices at their peak of their inherently short life span. Masters Abelskamp and Wilson perform Isaac Posch's (c. 1585-1622/23) Cantate Domino, Mozart's Sub tuum praesidium, the rarely-heard Mozart aria Quaere Superna, and Bach's Mein glšubiges Herze from Cantata 68. The Pacific Boychoir utilizes the rich sonority of an SSAA boys choir on Mendelssohn's Surrexit Pastor Bonus, using the impressive Rosales organ at First Presbyterian Church, Oakland.

The Pacific Boychoir performs regularly with the Berkeley Symphony and the San Francisco Symphony, in addition to self-produced concerts in the USA and internationally. The Boychoir has performed under the direction of Michael Tilson Thomas, Vance George, Kurt Masur, and Robert Spano, and can be heard on the San Francisco Symphony's Grammy-award winning recording of Mahler's Third Symphony.
