All Music Guide - James Leonard
The 36th volume in Masaaki Suzuki's survey of the complete extant cantatas of Bach shares all the virtues of the previous 35: insight into the works' spiritual underpinnings and top-notch musicality. The four vocal soloists sing with relaxed agility, and though some might find Yukari Nonoshita's soprano too white and Robin Blaze's counter-tenor too hooty, the effect is successful overall.

BIS' super audio digital recording is somehow even more transparent than their merely digital recordings.
