Another top-flight performance/recording,
This review is from: J.S Bach: Cantatas Vol.4 (Audio CD)
This one features five lesser-known (to me anyway) cantatas, plus one motet, long attributed to Bach, but now known not to be by him. Again, we have the usual high-quality exploration of undeservedly forgotten repertoire, exquisite musical jewels being brought into the light again to shine. Gardiner offers fresh insight into these masterpieces, both in the performance and in his sleeve notes.
It's sad that the journey is coming to a close - there are only about 6 volumes left in the series (assuming that Gardiner does not get permission from DG to re-release the ones already released on Archiv), but the pleasure of this great enterprise will endure.
