Notes & Reviews:

Import Hybrid-SACD pressing.

BBC Music Magazine
Solo soprano and trumpet... have long made Bach's cantata 'Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen' a favourite with audiences. ... this new performance with Carolyn Sampson and trumpeter Toshio Shimada is likely to prove appealing. Sampson's voice has bell-like clarity and an expressive warmth which serves Bach's writing... uncommonly well

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
Of Bach's 12 sacred solo cantatas, Jauchzet Gott stands as a virtuoso concert piece without peer... Still, this is not a performance where Suzuki seeks to liberate the musicians towards true exultance: perfection is all but achieved, but rather as a geometric proof than the kind of genuine uplift we get from Stich-Randall, Giebel or Stader. Sampson's performance still remains highly accomplished and her natural poetic instincts are wonderfully realised in the recitative 'Wir beten' and the delectable but slight Alles mit Gott. Suzuki presents all 12 verses in a 48-minute marathon which no manner of variation and embellishment can sustain: maybe it's rather too much of a good thing.
