Taking the Bach cantatas as a basis for a year-long pilgrimage in 2000, conductor Sir John Eliot Gardiner led the Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists on an emotional and artistically triumphant world tour to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the composer''s death. These performances feature Cantatas 179, 199, and 113, all composed for the Eleventh Sunday after Trinity, in marvelously dramatic interpretations by the choir and soloists, including soprano Magdalena Kozen, alto William Towers, tenor Mark Padmore, and bass Stephan Loges. Gardiner''s mission to expose the delicacy of emotion at the heart of Bach''s deceptively simple melodies pays dividends in settings that range from baroque German cathedrals to the austere bleakness of the island of Iona off Scotland. It''s a moving spiritual journey thanks to the passion of the performances and, above all, to Gardiner''s vision of Bach''s continuing relevance in the modern world at the beginning of a new millennium. --Piers Ford
