Soprano Maike Albrecht and harpsichordist Hans-Jürgen Schnoor from Lubeck, Germany join baroque flutist Jeffrey Cohan in Johann Sebastian Bach’s cantata Ich habe genug and other works

The church cantata Ich habe genug ("I am content"), BWV 82 was composed in Leipzig in 1727 for the feast Purification of Mary and is one of the most often performed and recorded of Bach's sacred cantatas. In this cantata, based on the Song of Simeon, Bach projects a feeling of serene contentedness with life and an expression of the experience of body and soul coming to rest and in complete harmony beyond anything that words alone can convey.
