The result is a sensitive, meaningful performance of this wonderful body of work.
Mary E. White
The bass soloist, Brindley Sherratt, offends by giving the stiffest and wooliest account I have heard of his great arioso.
Johannes Climacus
Gardiner's own essay is of the kind those familiar with the series must know very well.

Gardiner's Bach Cantata Pilgrimage series continues with a clutch of cantatas that must rank among Bach's greatest contributions to the genre. As usual, Gardiner's interpretations are bristling with insights and creative energy. Sometimes one might wish for a more laid-back approach; but a wee bit of interventionism is better than the blandness one often encountered in the old Kapellmeister tradition of Bach performance.

BWV 178 is an ingeniously constructed and intensely dramatic work; it is also (as Gardiner notes in his unusually insightful commentary) formidably difficult to perform. Gardiner's forces are certainly equal to the task, and give of their best. A real tour de force is the astonishing alto recitative in which the soloist sings the chorale in real time accompanied by the same tune in double diminution. Here, as throughout the performance, both singers and instrumentalists are on their mettle. A fine performance, even if Karl Ricther's classic version offers smoother execution and a more sweeping interpretation.

BWV 136 is a kinder, gentler work, though it shares a deeply penitential text with its disc-mates. Though neither as compelling in concept nor as tidy in execution as Suzuki's best-ever rendition, Gardiner's performance still manages to convey the muted joy and hopefulness rather well. Solo singing is good, though not quite up to the level of that on the rival Suzuki recording.

BWV 45, long a favorite, has recieved many distinguished recordings, including those by Karl Richter and Ernest Ansermet from the early stereo era.

If one has to give an extra-special Christmas gift, I strongly recommend, as I have, at various times here, the complete set of Bach Cantatas recorded at performances throughout Europe, and ending at St. Bartholomew's in New York (that odd faux-byzantine episcopalian contraption on Park Avenue two blocks up from my old office) each on its appropriate sunday, by John Eliot Gardiner, the Monteverdi Choir, Bach Soloists, and a batch of wonderful solo vocalists including Magdalena Kozena, Mark Padmore, James Gilchrist, Nathalie Stutzman, Robin Tyson, Katherine Fuge, Peter Harvey, etc. If means demand slower acquisition, then this volume can prove to be as good a starting point as any. The final album on the set was issued this year. Going through the whole set has been the most rewarding musical experience I have had in many a year. The wealth of inspiration and inventiveness Bach displays in this music is unmatched by any other composer (in my world Bach is god). Throughout my life I have dipped into the various collections of Bach cantatas beginning with the pioneering Harnoncourt/Leonhardt collection, Suzuki, Ton Koopman, Richter, Gonnenwein, but as individual performances and overall, I think John Eliot Gardiner captures the beauty, liveliness, gravitas, virtuosity, drama, and devotion in the music in ways others did not realize was present. The clarity with which these live performances have been captured is astonishing. This is no mere technical feet as it allows the listener to fully appreciate the full interplay between voice and instruments, at times how individual melodic lines are passed from a woodwind to a countertenor, for example, and how a solo violin decorates or provides descant to a vocal line. Beauty reigns.Read more ›

Format: Audio CD
For newcomers to Gardiner's `pilgrimage' project of recording all the Bach cantatas, the virtues of this particular release are the same as those you will find in practically any other volume in the series. The style of interpretation is scholarly and exemplary, the vocal idiom is the right kind for Bach and the instruments are suitable for music of this period, the actual performances are totally assured in the technical sense, the recording is faithful and proportionate, and above all the atmosphere is instinct with love of the music. Any reviewer who has offered notices of a good number of the other volumes, as I have, risks inflicting tedium on regular readers through constant repetition of the same opinions. However there is no way of knowing which item a newcomer will encounter first. The same things just have to be said every time, and of course the tedium is a property of the reviews only, in no way of this celestial music.

The separate volumes are all edited to a common standard. The format is a sort of book, and among my other repetitions I may as well give my usual warning that the discs require care in extracting. Also as usual, there is a long, scholarly and highly personal essay from the conductor, plus a shorter contribution from another participant, in this case a viola player. This latter is rather refreshingly down-to-earth this time, more concerned with accommodation and shopping than with the performing conditions or even the music. What Jane Rogers says about Berlin is interesting. They stayed at one of the new hotels in the east in 2000, and so did I in 2003 or 2004 - the Holiday Inn on the Prenzlauer Allee. Like Ms Rogers I found the streets nearly deserted after dark, but I sensed no danger whatsoever.
