"Energy and enthusiasm coupled with baroque mastery and scholarship contribute to the appeal of the gifted Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir. Alongside their integral recordings of Bach's secular and sacred cantatas, they have recorded all major baroque and classical works to great acclaim, with recognitions including a BBC Award and Gramophone Award. The choir is considered among today's most outstanding vocal ensembles for its combination of textural clarity and interpretive flexibility."
