Notes & Reviews:

In celebration of the 800th anniversary of the Thomanerchor Leipzig, Rondeau Production is publishing a ten-part exploration of cantatas for the liturgical year. This disc in observance of Epiphany, the first ecclesiastical feast of the calendar year, Bach's musical sermons on the biblical texts for the liturgy emphatically relate the biblical message to the reality of mankind.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
The other disc samples the Epiphany group: most familiar is Sie Werden aus Saba alle Kommen, with its colorful use of horns; 3, Ach Gott, wie Manches Herzeleid; 72, Alles nur nach Gottes Willen; these were composed in 1724-25-26. As palate-cleansing bonuses, each disc includes two brief Latin hymns in harmonized settings - a very pleasing touch.
