"Soprano Shannon Mercer sings with a clear, attractive voice…" (Oregonian, 26 December 2011)

"Abetted by the outstanding Portland chorus Cappella Romana and uniformly superb soloists from Canada's Le Voix Baroque, PBO's bracing, crisp, urgent and emotionally searing recording is the most gripping I've heard - including others performed in the tunings and styles and on the instruments Bach knew." (Oregon Arts Watch, 27 December 2011)
