REVIEWS
'A revealing diary of an ambitious pilgrimage…the Monteverdi Choir, typically bright and incisive…the four soloists matching them in those qualities…it is the Czech mezzo, Magdelena Kožená, who wins first honours with her superb singing…moving on the one hand, brilliant on the other'
Gramophone

'For every familiar work in the Bach cantata canon, Gardiner and company introduced audiences across Europe and beyond to a dozen others that they had never heard before through their Bach Cantata Pilgrimage. …the performers capture the religious dimensions of the little known early Leipzig Cantata BWV 179… The comprehension of Bach's music and its links with Lutheran theology are further underlined by Magdalena Kozená, who continues to articulate Bach's vivid imagery with eloquence and subtlety. Warmly recommended.'
