"The main part of this DVD release records 3 Bach cantatas as part of the very ambitious "pilgrimage" by conductor John Eliot Gardiner. The project was to perform the Bach's full cantata set in 50-plus locations around the world in a year of time. A second part is a documentary that followed the ensemble through their excursions, rehearsals, and performances in the project.
Though hardly music critics, we can only relate how excited we are when watching the performance in the main track and being broght along in their tour by the documentary. We gained a much better understanding on the locations and time J.S. Back had composed his magnificent set of works through the performance and the documentary.
Definitely a DVD release for all classical music lover to own."
Exciting, moving, fascinating experience.

"Since couldn't have been there, neither in J.S.Bach's days, nor accompany the wondrous pilgrimage journey in the year 2000, I feel so lucky having the opportunity to participate, though spiritually, in this moving odyssey along Bach's landscapes and music. Most gifted and loving production by the BBC, conducted by Sir John Eliot Gardiner. The music, no need to say, divine. Performance expressive and thrilling. Thanks so much!"
