La Petite Bande continues its successful series with a seasonal collection. This CD includes cantatas for Christmas Day, the second and third days of Christmas and the first Sunday after Christmas. “His vocal soloists sing with disarming simplicity and ease in arias, and blend superbly in ensemble.” BBC Music Magazine
“Gerlinde Samann is truly exceptional, exquisitely fresh and uncomplicated - every soprano aria throughout the disc held me enthralled. She is well matched by Petra Noskaiova's alto in the extraordinarily imaginative duet of BWV 91.”
“With sensitively played period instruments, balance problems are minimal, and the gain in linear clarity and rhythmic life is inestimable. What is more, the music sounds utterly 'right' played this way...This is another first-rate disc in what I find the most consistently satisfying and musically rewarding of any Bach cantata series on record.”
