Notes & Reviews:

Import Hybrid-SACD pressing.

BBC Music Magazine
Virtually flawless performances of three of Bach's most inspired cantatas. The opening choral 'Concerto' of BWV 187 splendidly done, voices matching instrumental clarity. Robin Blaze is in excellent form in a testing triple-time dance; Yukari Nonoshita, solo oboe and continuo weave a fanciful filigree of motifs in a deceptively testing aria. ...a superlative disc.

Gramophone Magazine
Brich dem Hungrigen dein Brot (BWV39) is a masterpiece of this changing landscape. Beauty however abounds in this genial reading - as it does in the only marginally less ambitious chorus of BWV187. In this latter score, no one could convey the gallant sweetness of the alto aria, "Du Herr, du krönst allein", with more "unction and blessing" (to quote the translation here) than Robin Blaze.
