Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
I can't imagine more beautifully long-breathed phrasing than oboist Masamitsu San-nomiya's. But eclipsing all else is the aria that follows, its tenor weaving Bach's logical counterpoint into unison strings and bass...all bathed in the ethereal acoustic of the Kobe Shoin Chapel. I would buy the disc for this alone.

Gramophone Magazine
Most beguiling is Ich steh mit einem Fuss in Grabe...The opening oboe sinfonia...floats effortlessly into a delectable tenor aria - a preparation for death whose wrong-footed ritornello, shimmering cantus firmus and chiselled harmonic wonders play into Gerd Turk's experienced hands...[in' Es ist vollbracht'] Peter Kooij summons true nobility of utterance in this most finite of elegies.

International Record Review
This is yet another high-quality instalment in Suzuki's complete Bach cantatas project, his readings highly polished as usual and seeking devotional depth rather than brilliance for its own sake.

The Observer
Performances are maybe cool but very committed, and one track has a hypnotic allure: Gerd Tnrk's tenor aria "Herr, so weit die Wolken gehen" from BWV 171, with two perfectly duetting violins.
