...in what appears to be a series of good ones. Which is good, because I've decided to buy the entire series, as I've enjoyed them so much. The well-known one on this set is the famous Annunciation cantata BWV1 "Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern". However, there are many other good things on these CDs. The Monteverdis and the EBS are on best form, with fresh, crisp sound, and the soloists, while not perfect, sing well. Gardiner has done a great service in introducing so many young singers to Bach and the cantatas in the course of the Pilgrimage. I presume that the audience has been drugged, gagged or strangled, because there isn't a peep out of them.

I look forward with anticipation to the rest of the volumes, at which point I shall be broke but happy.

By DAVID BRYSON TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 6 July 2012
Format: Audio CD
Gardiner's `pilgrimage' series performing all the Bach cantatas consists of 27 volumes. I now have all 27, this is my 26th review, so I shall soon echo the master in saying `es ist vollbracht' - it is finished. There is no way of knowing at what point any other listener may join the programme, so in case this review finds any readers I had better summarise for the 26th time the general features of the series. It has been a monumental project in more than one sense. Gardiner planned and carried out a `pilgrimage' throughout Europe and latterly even the USA in which he and a dedicated retinue of singers, instrumentalists and recording technicians gave all the Bach cantatas on the liturgical dates for which JSB had created them, subject to such minor divergences as were to be found between the years of composition and the year 2000, the 250th anniversary of Bach's death. This set, like most of the series, contains two discs, the first having four cantatas for Quinquagesima, the last Sunday before Lent; the other finding space for a cantata each for three separate feasts, first the Annunciation and then two dates close to that.

No variation or divergence that I can recall is to be found in the recorded quality: from eastern Germany to New York City the recording personnel have adapted seamlessly (to use the cliché) to non-stop changes of acoustic. The `volumes' are to a standard and attractive format - a kind of book with only a small warning needed to the user to be careful in handling the discs, which can sometimes fall out rather easily and at other times be recalcitrant.

I'm gradually collecting all the Bach cantatas in John Eliot Gardiner's set, so it's good to be able to get them secondhand.
