"Once again, Gardiner's Monteverdi Choir is the jewel in the crown of each cantata performance. Add to that Gardiner's electric response to music that he clearly loves and you have a set that rivals his Gramophone record of the year Award-Winning disc that launched this amazing series."
"Gardiner's vivid commitment carries through to the joyful performances. This ongoing recording project ranks as one of the musical events of the decade."
