Munchinger uses WF Bach’s alterations to Einfeste Burg (the addition of trumpets and kettledrums to the two largest movements), which – with the fresh, even raw, singing from soloists and chorus alike — makes this a dramatic almost triumphalist account; Wochet aufis similarly spacious and joyful. The sound is excellent; die chorus particularly vivid. William Humphreys-Jones
