Notes & Reviews:

"The principal fascination of the DVD is that it was recorded in the Thomaskirche, the principal church over which Bach had musical jurisdiction in Leipzig... There is much to enjoy both visually and musically... One of the greatest pleasures comes from the superb playing of the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, whose strings are not only rhythmically incisive, but also produce warmly glowing playing. The excellent continuo cellist should have been named in the documentation. The filming is largely done with sensitivity, and includes splendid shots of the magnificent edifice that is the Thomaskirche... This is an interesting and worthwhile addition to the DVD catalog." -Fanfare
