Notes & Reviews:

"Two aspects of this recording are noteworthy. Firstly, Sigiswald Kuijken believes Joshua Rifkin and Andrew Parrott are right as they think most sacred music by Bach - and many of his German contemporaries - was usually performed with one voice per part... Secondly, in all motets the voices are supported by instruments... On the whole I am very impressed by the way the text is communicated, with clear dynamic differences in line with the characteristics of the German language... this interpretation is to my knowledge one of the most satisfying, in particular in regard to the relationship of text and music." -MusicWeb
