Notes & Reviews:

"...The Monteverdi Choir is on excellent form and the solo line-up by and large a strong one. 'Wachet auf' needs a director with a good sense of theatre, and Gardiner is well able to convey the textual imperatives of its wonderfully evocative and stirring opening chorus. Few if any other available versions of the piece succeed better than this one..." **** -Anderson, BBC
