For info, track timings are as follows:
1. 20:23

So a shade slower than Jansons' new RCO release, in equally warm, sumptuous sound.
Very powerful.

4.0 out of 5 stars NOT complete cantatas, 24 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Please be aware that this is NOT a complete set of Bach's sacred cantatas. It is the complete recordings from the Gardiner Bach Cantata pilgrimage.

There is no doubt about the quality of the performances and recordings. Pick any CD at random from the set, pop it into your stereo and you'll be delighted. However, the card sleeves in which the discs are housed are rather thin and I wonder how well they will stand up to repeated handling.

Don't hesitate to buy if you want all of Gardiner's Bach and you can put up with the flimsy CD sleeves, but if you are looking for the COMPLETE cantatas you will need to look elsewhere.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hugely disappointing, 1 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At first I was very happy with these boots. Although not the snuggest of fits they were indeed super light - by far the lightest pair I've ever owned - and very comfortable.

However, after only 6 months of light use the sole section of the right boot started coming away and was soon hanging off. I noticed that the same was starting to happen on the left boot as well. I naturally returned them, and won't be buying another pair of Brashers.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best!, 1 Sept. 2013

I have several different butterfly guides but this one is by far the best. Comprehensive notes and photographs for every UK species including flying period, life cycle and locations, plus a very useful list of UK butterfly sites with their species.

These were good quality and comfortable shoes but too loose around the heel for my narrow feet so had to be returned

5.0 out of 5 stars Too good for words, 4 Dec. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Bairns (Audio CD)
I came across this breathtaking album by chance and am extremely happy to have done so. It is completely addictive and the CD follows me from room to room - lounge, kitchen, study, bedroom - in the car and at work. Whenever I'm away from a CD player I find myself humming the tunes. I have a collection of over 1000 CDs but think they'll soon be appearing on eBay as I now only listen to this one.
Every track is superb, it's not possible to choose a favourite, but as a pianist I must single out the playing of Belinda O'Hooley for special praise - it's quite magnificent.
Regardless of what sort of music you normally listen to, I would strongly urge anyone to give yourself a treat and buy The Bairns - I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
