Review

Gardiner's quixotic project to release all the recordings from his Bach cantata pilgrimage of 2000 is completed in 27 volumes. With live recordings from myriad venues it's amazing that such a high standard has been maintained: the music dazzles continuously and the performances show how far we have come since the first generation of period-instrument recordings. The blazing confidence of BWV 63 and BWV 191 (derived from the Gloria of the B minor Mass) are unbeatable; only the great opening chorus of BWV 140 ("Sleepers Wake") seems oddly brittle. There's great solo work from Claron McFadden, Bernarda Fink and others, with some more variable contributions, and when Gardiner and his team hit their stride, as in the final ecstatic duet of BWV 32, you never want it to end. But end it has, a tremendous achievement for the ensemble, and for the fledgling company Soli Dei Gloria. --The Observer,14/11/10

Masterly throughout --BBC Music Magazine,Christmas'10

If you are collecting the series-and even if you aren't-you wont be disappointed.Gardiner's direction is hard to fault,the instrumental playing is excellent and the choir and soloists are not far behind. *** --Classic fm Magazine,Feb'11
