Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, September 2013
An enjoyable addition to Kuijken's series, with inspired moments in performance.

Gramophone Magazine, March 2013
Here again Kuijken and La Petite Bande bring their most natural and distilled spaciousness to proceedings. If the opening movement of Wachet auf is a touch prosaic, even emaciated at times, the subsequent duet between the Soul and Christ is a heart-warming essay in gentle domestic rumination. The dialogue between instruments and solo voices is indeed where these performances come alive.

International Record Review
He [Kuijken] strives for as near an authentic experience as is reasonably possible, and the results of his arguments are persuasive. The agility of his soloists in the 'choral' movements helps to explain Bach's often mightily complex contrapuntal lines.
