Notes and Editorial Reviews

John Eliot Gardiner approaches journey’s end with two volumes of Trinity cantatas, each containing works of outstanding beauty. Two which make special claims on the attention are BWV 199 for soprano voice, and BWV 105, whose expressive intensity is sustained with consummate mastery. Hearing this performance it is impossible to doubt Gardiner’s deep personal involvement in the music. There is nothing clinical or hidebound by confining orthodoxy here.

-- Nicholas Anderson, BBC Music Magazine [reviewing this CD and DG 463591]
