Reviews
"This ongoing recording project ranks as one of the musical events of the decade."
Fiona Maddocks - The Observer   20 December 2009
"The variety of this work for Christmas and Epiphany is astonishing, and the singing from the Monteverdi Choir and soloists fully matches it."
Sunday Times   10 October 2010
"There are countless highlights in the final two volumes. The duet singing in BWV 32 between Claron McFadden and Peter Harvey is memorably rewarding. Similarly cathartic is the peerless, reassuring expression of eternal union in the great duet of BWV 154 with Michael Chance and James Gilchrist."
