The title really sums it up. As a paid-up member of the Kirkby Bootboys Brigade, I could fill the review with all the usual adjectives like "superb", "pure", "divine" etc., but it really is pointless. If you have heard her before, especially singing Bach, this CD will come as no suprise and is a pure delight.

These recordings were made in the mid-1990s with Emma's voice not quite so liquid and flexible as ten years previously but nevertheless still a delight to hear. She here treats us to the two wedding cantatas BWV 202 and 210 and, for good measure, the arias 'Bist du bei nir' and 'Gedenke doch, mein Geist plus the beautiful 'Schlummert ein' aria from cantata 82. Not surprisingly she pays great attention to detail- note the clarity of rapid scale passages with every note in place. As in several other Kirkby recordings, she is more than adequately supported by Christopher Hogwood and a small group from the Academy of Ancient Music. Decca's very informative booklet provides all libretti in the original German plus English and French translations. I have given only four stars to this recording mainly because I'm not so keen on the wedding cantatas compared to much else of Bach's output. I get more out of the Coffee and Peasant cantatas, especially Kirby's fine recording of them.

Beautiful singing by the ever-delightful Emma Kirkby backed by some excellent playing by Hogwood's Academy of Ancient Music. Kirkby has impeccable phrasing and a light touch with Bach and there is an undeniably English sound to this CD, in places almost a hint of Purcell sung in German. This is Bach with a smile. Buy and enjoy.

HASH(0x956314b0) out of 5 stars Heavenly to listen to 18 Sept. 2010

I am transported to Heaven hearing this great music. Kirkby's voice sooths the soul. It is the total opposite of the screeching that characterises todays modern female pop singers. Turn on-tune in- go to Heaven!!

HASH(0x943b4ad4) out of 5 stars Strong recommadation 24 Oct. 2007
By HSIEH CHENG CHUNG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Hogwoord seldom recoreded Bach music comparied to others ex Handel, Pucell--and so on baroque composer, but in this set he worked with Kirkby perform fully wedding cantata's joyous mood. I feel so regret that why Hogwood didn't record more bach cantata??

In BWV82, we could find more version, includes centre-tenor, mezzo-soprano, baritone, and bass. This is what Bach revised to use for different purposes. I deeply love this song, and collect more to compare, I must say we would find seldom mezzo-soprano version in market but Kirkby in fact would be one of the most outstanding, she shows different bach to beautiful and clear artistic conception.

For these reasons, I strong recommand all to collect it to listen, a different Bach what it's not easy to get.
