Notes & Reviews:

Bach's six Motets are among the greatest achievements of choral polyphony in the baroque period. This early recording by The Sixteen and Harry Christophers is a jewel in Hyperion's catalogue, containing performances of utter joy, rendered in sonic splendor.

American Record Guide
Splendid. A wonderful achievement, one that only renews our admiration for Bach. It has been six, maybe twelve months since I heard a record that impressed me as much as this one. Donít pass it by.
