Notes & Reviews:

Andrew Parrott is a master of musicological detective work, known for his adventurous and uncompromising scholarship. He is also internationally known for his pioneering historically informed performances and recordings of pre-classical repertory. This new release combines the best of both, resulting in the first full reconstruction and recording of the funeral music for J.S. Bach's patron, Prince Leopold of Cöthen. Parrott conducts the renowned Taverner Consort and Players, the organization he founded in 1973, and a superb roster of baroque vocal soloists. A unique document and superb performance make this a recording for classical music aficionados and lovers of Bach's music alike.

MusicWeb International, June 2012
This reconstruction brings scholarship and highly informed speculation to bear and offers a convincing recreation of Bach's final musical offering to his late master.

The Arts Desk, 18th February 2012
The use of one voice per part never sounds anaemic and the singers' crystalline clarity is a joy to the ears...What's most important is that the work sounds like a real, finished work, not a speculative completion. It's beautifully recorded with good notes.

International Record Review, January 2012
These are outstanding performances which transcend in the ears of any genuine lover of Bach's music the somewhat controversial nature of the music itself.
