Notes & Reviews:
BBC Music Magazine
A wonderful digest of Bach's unparalleled achievement in this area. The soloists are generally distinguished, and sometimes excellent - tenor Peter Schreier and soprano Arleen Augér both give object lessons in Bach style... Rilling's performances... are neatly tailored and naturally benevolent in nature, buoyant with the wholesomeness and warmth that this great music so frequently emanates. There is simply no better way of celebrating a musical Christmas.
