Notes & Reviews:

"Finally, here is a recording of Bach's motets (sung at sensible tempos) that employs a moderately-sized choir (two dozen voices - no "one-to-a-part" stuff here!), a simple basso continuo (organ and cello), and doesn't get hung up on the "did he or didn't he" nonsense regarding BWV 230 (Lobet den Herrn), rightly including it among the "standard six" works Bach composed in this rather vaguely defined genre.... Channel Classics' sound is typically demonstration-quality, and the packaging is very sensible and user-friendly. Essential!" -Classics Today (10/10)

Gramophone Magazine
Bach's technical wizardry is most apparent in the combination of chorale and fugue in Fürchte dich nicht. Dijkstra presents this with clarity and works up to a strong affirmative ending.
