Notes & Reviews:

Expedition Audio Recommended
What's more, both the performances and the sonics on this studio recording from 2002 are excellent. Conductor Nicol Matt leads his Chamber Choir of Europe, the Württembergische Philharmonie Reutlingen and a cast of six fine singers. On top of all this, the Brilliant Classics asking price is a steal! ... read more ...

The Psalm Cantatas are performed by the Chamber Choir of Europe who, among numerous other feats, has already recorded the complete sacred choral works of both Mozart and Mendelssohn. They are led by Nicol Matt, a specialist in church music. This is the only single CD available with the complete Psalm Cantatas.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
Having said that, I am happy to report that the performances by Matt and his singers make an ideal case for the music. The soloists are all good, especially the soprano in Psalm 42. The Chamber Choir of Europe (formerly the Nordic Chamber Choir) is excellent. If you are attracted to this style, buy without fear.
