Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Leonard
Though no doubt sincerely spiritual, what one often admires most in Masaaki Suzuki's recordings of Bach's cantatas is their intense humanity.

Those who have followed Suzuki's cantata series so far need not hesitate, and those looking for a place to get on could do worse than to start here.
