Notes & Reviews:

SDG's Bach Cantata series Vol 2: Cantatas for the Second Sunday after Trinity & Cantatas for the Third Sunday after Trinity. Performing to an audience of more than 1200, we join Gardiner, The Monteverdi Choir and The English Baroque Soloists at the halfway point of their Bach Cantata pilgrimage for a concert in one of the great architectural landmarks of Catholic Europe, the Basilisque Saint-Denis (Basilica Cathedral of Saint Denis). We then head to Zürich to hear Gardiner and his Monteverdi forces perform within the stunning Fraumunster Kirche, distinctive for its slender, blue spire. "This ongoing recording project ranks as one of the musical events of the decade." The Observer

Gramophone Magazine
Here, again, it the spontaneous and committed response of Sir John Eliot Gardiner's musicians which dominates the majority of performances...Gardiner is the king of dramatic moment...As so often in the Pilgrimage, James Gilchrist stands out.

BBC Music Magazine
This vividly scored piece of theatre [BWV21] places both voices and a colourful instrumental group in urgent dialogue. We are drawn into this right from the opening Sinfonia...Among competing versions only Richter approaches Gardiner in his apposite sense of theatre.
