"Gardiner’s 2000 Bach Pilgrimage volumes are very addictive. No studio renderings can match them for immediacy, and their revelations are many. Here, the Swedish soprano Malin Hartelius occasionally lacks strength; but the general eloquence is overwhelming, especially from the tenor James Gilchrist and the Monteverdi Choir. There are seven cantatas, recorded live in Ambronay and Bremen. You feel you were there, and it’s thrilling."  ****

Geoff Brown

The Times - 1 December 2006

"Sir John Eliot Gardiner’s splendid and ongoing series of Bach cantatas continues to stimulate and delight in equal measure. This set is the pick of the 2007 crop, especially the cantatas for the Feast of St. Michael and All Angels on the second disc. All of these cantatas are superb and receive vivid performances but the set is particularly notable for the stunning account of Es erhub sich ein Streit, BWV 19.This is a most exciting cantata but what makes this a desert island choice for me is the seraphic aria ‘Bleibt, ihr engel, bleibt bei mir.’ This receives a spellbinding performance from James Gilchrist, which alone is enough to make this disc a mandatory purchase."
