John W Barker
American Record Guide, November 2016

Everything is tidy and efficient. …The maturing of the period-performance movement has given musicians reliable standards and the technique to function confidently.

Certainly there is solid musicianship here. The four soloists are not familiar to me and are not truly exceptional, but their work is reliable and satisfying. The chorus is again superb, and the period orchestra is full of sensitive and alert players. There were some moments that caught my attention as outstanding, such as the tender and moving Sinfonia to the second cantata. © 2016 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Gramophone, December 2015

…In buoyant fugues, the Bavarian Radio Choir and the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin dispatch Bach’s florid lines and textures with shapely agility, and also deliver muscular heft when Bach calls for it. © 2015 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone
