Notes and Editorial Reviews



Notable cantatas from Kuijken, often revelatory

This must be something of a golden age for Bach cantata recordings. With the standard being flown by epic, high-profile series from the likes of John Eliot Gardiner and Masaaki Suzuki, there are plenty of less heralded entries of the highest quality. Sigiswald Kuijken delivers the finest yet of his own Bach project. Warm, gloriously played and sung, it holds its own against any competition.

-- Gramophone [7/2008]

This is a hybrid Super Audio CD playable on both regular and Super Audio CD players.
