Notes & Reviews:

Import Hybrid-SACD pressing.

BBC Music Magazine
Among the several on-going or completed Bach cantata series, Masaaki Suzuki's is among the more contemplative. ... his approach is unmatched in moments such as the plaintive soprano aria in BWV146. Its text, of 'tears sown with anxious heart', is accompanied by the haunting mix of flute and two oboes d'amore. Rachel Nicholls sings the aria with sublime simplicity.

Gramophone Magazine
Peter Kooij is at his very best in the deceptively hard and highly melismatic opening aria of No 88. This requires exceptional stamina, as the bass graphically tells of the miracle of the fisherman Simon, in a performance of commanding presence. It is matched also in the exquisitely refined chamber-like exchanges of the soprano and alto duo of Rachel Nicholls and Robin Blaze.
