Bach: Cantatas for Christmas

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Manheim
This box set, released in 2012, is a compilation of recordings pertaining to the Christmas season from the Bach Cantata Pilgrimage undertaken at the turn of the millennium by conductor John Eliot Gardiner, the Monteverdi Choir, and the authentic-instrument English Baroque Soloists. The group toured churches in Europe ending up in America, performing all of Bach's cantatas on liturgically appropriate days. Each release back then, for no very good reason, featured a Third World child on the cover, similar to the one shown in the graphics for this release. Gardiner's cantata cycle, underwritten by none other than the Prince of Wales, is noteworthy for its warm sound, its ...

All Music Guide - James Manheim
This box set, released in 2012, is a compilation of recordings pertaining to the Christmas season from the Bach Cantata Pilgrimage undertaken at the turn of the millennium by conductor John Eliot Gardiner, the Monteverdi Choir, and the authentic-instrument English Baroque Soloists. The group toured churches in Europe ending up in America, performing all of Bach's cantatas on liturgically appropriate days. Each release back then, for no very good reason, featured a Third World child on the cover, similar to the one shown in the graphics for this release. Gardiner's cantata cycle, underwritten by none other than the Prince of Wales, is noteworthy for its warm sound, its fervor, and its engagement with the texts of the cantatas. Each release in the cycle featured an extensive exegesis from Gardiner himself, setting the meaning of the cantatas performed against the experience of the musicians in performing them. With this box, you get a much abridged version, and you miss a good deal of the immediacy of the performances, which is their main virtue: for contrapuntal clarity, vocal spectacle, historical erudition, and so forth, there are other places to go. On the plus side, the music hangs together simply because it is thematically related, and you get a good taste of what Gardiner's set is all about. If money is no object, try out some individual releases in the cycle; for a strong budget choice in the most human and humane of the major Bach cantata cycles, this is fine.
