A fresh and beautiful recorded performance.They are singing as it is for the first time...a very good diction..every phrase is understandable..the accompaniment is adequate to the style and size of the group.
I heared them in live in Israel and the first thing I did was to order this item.

Very fine singing, lovely chamber vocal performance 6 May 2011
By David Studhalter - Published on Amazon.com
Some people will prefer the fuller choral versions of these motets, which were already rather antiquated in Bach's time. Most of them were written for funerals, where, it's a safe bet, there were no more than one or two singers to a part, and this is the texture that Bach undoubtedly intended. This is complex music, the details of which can easily be lost in the thick texture of a larger chorus (even a "kammerchor"). This is essentially a chamber version, with virtuosic, energetic, and well-articulated and controlled singing. Highly recommended.

Superb Performance; CD Sound MUCH Better than Samples 10 Dec. 2014
By Pete Arnold - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
My earlier 4-star rating was based only on listening to the mp3 clips. I've sung all these works, and long to hear the complexity of the interwoven vocal lines and the subtle interpretations fine singers can bring to them. If the singers are up to it, the clarity of hearing one voice to a part can be amazing. These singers are more than up to it - they bring out all the beauty that's in the music. The CD sound is MUCH clearer than in the demo clips. It's like moving from row Z to Row F - the room acoustics and instruments are balanced properly, and every vocal line is clear and in place. Even if you already have other recordings of these wonderful works, get this CD and you'll be rewarded with beauty and clarity you haven't heard before.

Great!! 17 Mar. 2014
By pleiades - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I am used to listening these motets by J.S.Bach.
Therefore, I'd like to listen different performances from the conventional them.
This vocal group's performances are excellent.
I think that their performances are well worth listening.
Thus, I recommend with confidence.
