Notes & Reviews:

This cycle, which is clearly not intended for liturgical use and dedicated to his friend Gustav Duben, must indubitably be seen as an expression of Buxtehude's own religious experience and personal devotion. Led by Jos van Veldhoven, The Netherlands Bach Society has gained broad international acclaim for their insightful and virtuosic performances, both live and on their numerous recordings for Channel Classics. "Homogeneity among voices and instruments is a rewarding feature of this new issue....rich in expressive sensibility, projecting an inner fervor which is further enhanced by commendably lucid textures. Veldhoven's instrumentalists respond to the textural imagery with greater imagination than contemporary versions." -BBC Music Magazine

bbc.co.uk - Andrew McGregor
They dally deliciously on any expressive dissonances and suspensions, while the players add warmth and colour with intelligent use of vibrato and ornamentation, becoming more overtly dramatic at the start of the third cantata, where their percussive introduction reminds you forcibly of the nails hammered into Christ's hands.
