Bach, echo aria

In December 2015 we recorded the "echo aria" from the Bach Christmas Oratorium, with Marèl on soprano recorder, instead of the original hoboe. Morevoer the echo soprano is sung by Marèl ! Listen on www.loenakiela.net.

In the "large" church of Doetinchem, the Catharinakerk, we played and sang music from 1600 to 1750, from Italy and England. With the beatiful chanson "Susanne un jour" by Roland de Lassus, printed in 1560, and with the Bach aria "Höchster, was ich habe" from Cantata BWV 39.
