Notes and Editorial Reviews


This is a two sided DVD playable in both NTSC and PAL formats: The RED side up in a DVD player is NTSC and the YELLOW side up in a DVD player is the same concert in PAL.

Czech mezzo soprano Magdalena Kozená leads a top line-up of soloists for three of Bach’s most admired Cantatas (BWV 113, 179 & 199), with Sir John Eliot Gardiner conducting the Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists in the beautiful St Davids Cathedral in Wales. A 60-minute film of Gardiner’s Bach pilgrimage tour with excerpts from many other Cantatas, recorded in Weimar, Leipzig,Hamburg, Eisenach, Arnstadt, Blythburgh, Kirkwall, Iona, St Davids, Cologne & New York completes an exceptional title and documents Gardiner’s
Read more remarkable dedication to the music of J. S. Bach.

An extra features includes a mini documentary about Sir John Eliot Gardiner’s year 2000 Bach Pilgrimage project.

"A revealing diary of an ambitious pilgrimage...the Monteverdi Choir,typically bright and incisive,the four soloists matching them in those qualities...it is the Czech mezzo,Magdalena Kozená who wins first honours with her superb singing, moving on the one hand, brilliant on the other." - Gramophone
