Overview

In this, the sixth volume of John Eliot Gardiner's Bach cantata pilgrimage, Gardiner, the Monteverdi Choir, the English Baroque Soloists, and soloists present three cantatas for the Twelfth Sunday after Trinity (recorded live in the Jakobskirche in Köthen on September 10, 2000) and three cantatas for the Thirteenth Sunday after Trinity (recorded a week later in the Dreikönigskirche in Frankfurt). As previously in this distinguished series, Gardiner's approach is clearly devotional: no point goes unmade in these purposefully religious works. From the opening "Lobe den Herrn, meine Seele, BWV 69a," with its festive opening movement to the closing "Allein zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ, BWV 33," with its affecting final chorale harmonization, this disc is compelling and persuasive. In both locations, SDG's sound is startlingly clear yet amazingly atmospheric.

Editorial Reviews

Gramophone - Jonathan Freeman-Attwood
This is a volume to treasure on many counts.
Daily Telegraph - Richard Wigmore
Gardiner's Bach is in a class of its own for colour, drama and rhetorical subtlety. His choir and instrumentalists respond with breathtaking virtuosity, while among the fine soloists, Natalie Stutzmann's coppery contralto is especially moving.
