Notes & Reviews:

Bach's own transcriptions of his works are, on the whole, well known and well documented, but His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts perform here their own arrangements that have proved very successful in the concert hall. To hear all these works in such unfamiliar, yet extraordinarily beautiful, rich and rare sonorities can only be described as pure luxury.

'A beguiling and brilliantly conceived programme, brilliantly performed. A special recommendation for a most delightful and unusual disc' (Gramophone)

'An engaging programme' (BBC Music Magazine)

'the Sinfonia to Cantata 29 is vibrant and exhilarating... this is certainly an interesting addition to the Bach catalogue' (Cathedral Music)

'splendid performances... all done with taste and affection' (Early Music Today)

'The playing and singing are of course very good indeed' (Scotland News)

'the instrumental tone is very attractive and the standard of playing simply splendid' (American Record Guide)

'This disc is a unique journey through some of Bach's sacred music, with, as guides, an ensemble which takes an original approach to the music and comes out a winner... This is certainly one of the most interesting 'derivative' Bach albums I have heard in a long time' (musicweb.uk.net)
