5.0 out of 5 stars Chosen the Best Nov. 15 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This recording was recently chosen as the best version of this likable work by Gramophone Magazine. Runners up include versions conducted by Britten, Minkowski and King. Both the performance and the recording quality are splendid. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice early music discovery July 31 2005
By J. Oakley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Trevor Pinnock (conductor and elite harpsichordist) has a playful yet disciplined style that works well for this music. It is a relatively short CD (around 40min, I believe) with a broad arch from playful prelude to meditative finale. I return to it often.

I already have this recording after having heard this live at the Carmel (CA) Bach Festival a couple of years ago. I bought as a gift and the recipient loves it as much as I do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, solid perfromance with a quick tempo Jan. 24 2009
By Markian Gooley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Pinnock keeps things moving with a lively tempo that's never too fast: the opening and the march are slow and stately enough, as are the slower, more meditative numbers and the "deaconing" of the chorus by the soprano that starts the finale. The tenor has a few quirks, whether his own or due to Pinnock, notably a huge and almost comical scoop up to the high note of "The trumpet's loud clangor" that pretty much breaks the mood (not a glorification of war but the recognition of its reality, as the words "`tis too late to retreat'" in Dryden's text make clear, and the matter-of-fact tone from tenor and chorus is otherwise spot on). Maybe that's historically authentic, but it's jarring.
