Notes & Reviews:

Soli Deo Gloria offers the next installment in its award-winning Bach Cantata series, a double album featuring cantatas for the second and third Sunday before Lent, recorded live in February 2000. We join the Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists under the direction of John Eliot Gardiner in Naarden, Holland for a performance of Bach's cantatas for Septuagesima. The program opens with Bach's first Leipzig cycle, "Nimm, was dein ist, und gehe hin" (BWV 144), and ends with the third of Bach's surviving cantatas for this Sunday, "Ich hab in Gottes Herz und Sinn" (BWV 92).

BBC Music Magazine
Expressive fervour and eloquent phrasing with which the excellent singers of the Monteverdi Choir infuse their performance. There are also some splendid solo contributions, notably from tenors James Oxley and James Gilchrist and basses Jonathan Brown and Stephen Loges.

Gramophone Magazine
Gardiner's forces are on splendid form in another exceptional volume.

Sunday Times
There's nothing routine about this music, and nothing routine about these performances, either.

The Observer
Fine performances all round, but the palm as ever has to go to Bach himself: the amazing central fresco of BWV 18 is far more dramatic than most operas of the time.

Gramophone Magazine
Strong interpretations, with fine choral work in this set of cantatas for Trinity. ... the pick of the crop - certainly in choral terms - is the sensational and woefully little-known Es wartet, BWV187, whose opening canvas is strikingly extensive.
