Notes & Reviews:

Accent's acclaimed Cantata series featuring Sigiswald Kuijken and La Petite Bande concludes with volume eighteen. The disc offers works for the twenty-sixth Sunday after Trinity, the sixth Sunday after Trinity and Palm Sunday. Kuijken's cycle is notable for its use of solo voices in place of a choir. Once highly controversial, this approach has gained traction in some musicological circles. Regardless of authenticity, the superb performances in this series deserve a wide audience and shed new light on familiar territory. Accent's Super Audio recordings also give the music an added depth and clarity not possible on a standard compact disc.

BBC Music Magazine, June 2014
Of the one-to-a-part voices, Gerlinde Samann has a lovely quality but sacrifices sustained tone to diction. Christoph Genz's upper range glows brightly and Jan van der Crabben displays a fine dramatic sense...Bach at his best, performed with great commitment.

International Record Review, May 2014
The real beauty of this music-making is immediately apparent, as is the extreme attention to every tiny detail which characterizes Kuijken's whole approach.

Gramophone Magazine, June 2014
Kuijken's now-familiar one-to-a-part approach pays dividends in the dancing lightness of texture and refined, chamber-musical interplay between voices and instruments...provisos centre on Kuijken's choice of vocal soloists...A disc of mixed pleasures, then, valuable above all for the expressive contributions of Kuijken and his fellow instrumentalists.
