Ideale Audience

 

"It's the overwhelming sincerity that compels, and Nelson's cast is strong...If plushness and incisiveness drive Nelson's vision, then Oxford's Schola Cantorum respond in kind."
  — BBC Music Magazine

 

"A top flight recording of Bach's monumental opus ... a DVD of exceptional merit ... This is easily a release that I will turn on without the video many times, and it is also the equal of virtually any audio-only release on the market. This is how concerts should be filmed. For Bach with purpose, understanding, and love, you need look nowhere else."
