Notes & Reviews:

"...I approve of the ruffles and flourishes Gardiner throws my way, and I suspect many of you will too. I love the way he digs in so lugubriously at 'Es ist der alte Bund'...Listen also for the sparkling charm he coaxes from the sopranos as they hold 'so lang'...in 'Gottes Zeit'...The emotional complexity of this music is downright staggering...Miraculous music, in short, played to the dramatic and emotional hilt." -Greenfield, ARG
