Notes & Reviews:

Frieder Bernius and the Kammerchor Stuttgart present two of Johann Sebastian Bach's most important works: The Easter Oratorio BWV 249 and the Oratorio for Ascension Day BWV 11, both of which Bach himself valued very highly. For this recording, Bernius was joined by renowned soloists and the Barockorchester Stuttgart.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
It is fortuitous that these two works fit so comfortably on a single CD. Other artists have paired them in this way, and there is every reason to expect that they will continue to be so combined. One such recording that particularly impressed me was by Matthew Halls and the Retrospect Ensemble (Linn 373; May/June 2012). Halls gives these works bold and dramatic readings that do not compromise the refinement and dignity of the style and subject. Masaaki Suzuki and Bach Collegium Japan (BIS 1561) combine these works in readings that are more devotional and introspective.
