A solid recording of the Ascension Oratorio - normally I am skeptical about period instruments, but I fell in love with this recording instantly. The soloists are, for the most part, up to the task, and Herreweghe makes sure that this performance is majestic but not overpowering.
The two cantatas on this CD are also well done - clear and intimate. Bass Peter Kooy is very much in his element here.
