Notes & Reviews:

SDG is delighted to release Volume 12 - Cantatas for the twenty-second and twenty-third Sundays after trinity. John Eliot Gardiner, The Monteverdi Choir and The English Baroque Soloists performed both of these programmes in England: at All Saints church in Tooting and at Winchester Cathedral, in November 2000. The soloists include James Gilchrist, Peter Harvey and Joanne Lunn. The highlight of this album is Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme ("Sleepers, wake") - one of Bach's best known cantatas, and one that has long been part of the Monteverdi Choir's repertoire. It is described as "a cantata without weaknesses, without a dull bar, technically, emotionally and spiritually of the highest order".

Gramophone Magazine
There are countless highlights in the final two volumes...Gillian Keith is gloriously assuaging in "Ich halte er mit dem lieben Gott" from BWV52.

BBC Music Magazine
Gardiner with his characteristic sense of theatre imbues [the opening of BWV140] with urgency and anticipation. BWV 115 is masterly throughout.
