Notes and Editorial Reviews

Gramophone-award winning Czech mezzo soprano Magdalena Kozõená 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.

Sir John Eliot Gardiner’s Bach pilgrimage - A 60-minute film of Gardiner’s Millennium 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 remarkable dedication to the music of J. S. Bach.

‘A revealing diary of an
Read more 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
