“Gardiner's performance of Ach Gott, wie manches Herzeleid bends the ear towards the power of doleful dissonance, as the opening chorus wends it way through the 'narrow path of sorrow' with all the emblematic trappings of the operatic chaconne. Equally compelling is the taut, cathartic duet 'Wenn Sorgen', where Joanna Lunn and Richard Wyn Roberts chase each other in canonic bliss - in what Gardiner describes as Bach's Singin' in the Rain. The bonus of the great motet Jesu, meine Freude, performed with customary vividness if not polish by the Monteverdi Choir, completes another memorable addition to the series.”
