Works include BWV 148 Bringet dem Herrn Ehre seines Namens, BWV 114 Ach, lieben Christen, seid getrost, BWV 47 Wer sich selbst erhöhet, der soll erniedriget werden, the motet BWV 226 Der Geist hilft unser Schwacheit auf, BWV 96 Herr Christ, der ein’ge Gottessohn, BWV 169 Gott soll allein mein Herze haben, BWV 116 Du Friedefürst, Herr Jesu Christ and BWV 668 Vor deinen Thron tret’ ich hiermit, the so-called "Deathbed Chorale."

BBC Music Magazine
The opening chorus of BWV 148... It's just the kind of piece at which the Monterverdi Choir surpasses its rivals, and the instrumental support from the English Baroque Soloists is splendid. John Eliot Gardiner brings his accustomed fervour to the music, enlivening it at every turn. Altogether, this is one of the strongest releases in Gardiner's series so far.

Gramophone Magazine
BWV148... includes the aria "Wo wird in diesem Jammertale", a model of the extended soul-searching tableau in which, here, the singer and obbligato flute are co-subsumed within a vale of sorrow. It is beguilingly delivered by tenor Mark Padmore and flautist Rachel Beckett, the highlight of the Swedish programme... an electrifying account of the Sinfonia of BWV169... heralds Bach's least celebrated but, arguably, most refined and mature alto cantata. Nathalie Stutzmann sails through each portion with her inimitable diction and plush allure.
