Notes & Reviews:

"...a dazzling recording of the standard six Bach motets that for me raises the bar a notch higher. The hand of Jacobs is evident in his arrangements of the music. Doubling instruments come and go, and some sections are taken by soloists...The singing itself is splendid...We have several good recordings of the motets, but for now this is the one to beat." -Althouse
