Gramophone Classical Music Guide
None of these five cantatas extends beyond a quarter of an hour and yet the wealth of material is brilliantly compressed in a manner which followers of Bach's chorale cantata Jahrgang, his second cycle from Trinity 1724, would have come to expect. Before the following Easter, the composer had abandoned the cycle - at least partly, one imagines, as a result of some upset with the church authorities - and resumed with the conventional model where the music takes the gospel as catalyst for poetic inspiration.Vol 39 from Masaaki Suzuki introduces us initially to the outstanding Whit Monday cantata, No 68, Also hat Gott die Welt geliebt ('God so loved the world') in a performance of uncharacteristically ruddy complexion by Collegium Bach Japan. The siciliana rhythm is elegantly turned here but lacks intensity. ..These are, indeed, fine performances with notable contributions from all the soloists (and obbligato instruments - apart from some laboured violoncello piccolo playing in BWV183, albeit played on the shoulder, "da spalla"), though no single one falls into that special category where an association between work and performer is formed for instant recall.

Gramophone Magazine
Fine performances with notable contributions from all the soloists.

The Guardian
The wonderfully trim and naturally expressive period band and choir, underpinned by an exceptional group of continuo players... . High-quality Bach singing and playing.
