Podcast: The Bach Cantata Pilgrimage

On Christmas Day, 1999, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, together with the Monterverdi Choir and the English Baroque Soloists, embarked on one of the largest performance/recording projects undertaken. The plan was to perform and record all 200+ cantatas by Johann Sebastian Bach in one year, each on their proper day in the church calendar. This project gave some lucky audiences a chance to hear incredible live performances of these cantatas. It gave the rest of us incredible performances of every Bach cantata.
