Cantatas, Sacred and Secular

  • "There were no precedents, no earlier attempts to perform all Bach's surviving church cantatas on the appointed feast day and all within a single year, for us to draw on or to guide us" — Bach Cantata Pilgrimage - Gardiner.

  • "The Gonzales Cantata, as the name suggests, is a large-scale choral work about the fall of former attorney general Alberto Gonzales, with text taken directly from his hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee in 2007" — Complete Performance: The Gonzales Cantata at the 2009 Philadelphia Fringe Festival.
