Notes & Reviews:

Hermann Max and the Rheinische Kantorei set out on new paths toward the interpretation of Bach's motet cosmos. The present CD also includes the Motets BWV Anh. 159 because Bach scholarship has come to regard these works, long ascribed to Johann Christian Bach, as compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach as they clearly bear his musical signature.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
The performances are everything you would want from a technical point of view. Under conductor Max the singers are beautifully in tune and full of energy. The music is nicely shaped with lots of choral swells, and the diction is clear. To sum up this is in many ways a fine recording.
