|Brandenburg/Cantata Series II: Dunedin Consort at Edinburgh's Queen's Hall|
|Contrasting vocal and instrumental, sacred and secular, the Dunedin Consort's 'Brandenburg/Cantata Series II' featured two of Bach's popular concerti grossi, flanked by a pair of sacred cantatas.
Instrumental contrast distinguished the cantatas as much as the concerti. BWV106, 'Gottes Zeit ist die allerbeste Zeit' (also known as Actus Tragicus) featured, in its opening Sonatina, lovely recorder writing, tenderly phrased by Pamela Thorby and Catherine Lathan.|
