Notes & Reviews:

John Eliot Gardiner's Gramophone and BBC Music Magazine award-winning Bach Cantata series on SDG continues with six cantatas (BWV 16, 41, 58, 143 153 & 171) for New Year's Day and for the Sunday after New Year. Recorded live at the Gethsemanekirche in Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin in January 2000, the set is specially priced.

BBC Music Magazine
Soloists are superb throughout, Ruth Holton (soprano) specially striking for her transparent almost boy-like tone (BWV 58), and James Gilchrist (tenor) matching instrumental agility while a trio weaves heavenly counterpoint around him in BWV 171. Instrumentalists are no less polished... Altogether, Gardiner and his team at their very best.

Gramophone Magazine
Splendid New Year cantatas from the very earliest days of the Pilgrimage. Most stirring perhaps is the bold canvas of Jesu, nun sei gepreiset, whose energetic climbs... are negotiated with exceptional bravura.

Sunday Times
All [cantatas] are beautifully performed by the Monteverdi Choir and the English Baroque Soloists, with the tenor James Gilchrist outstanding for his stylish grace.
