(Carus/SWR2 2015)

The beauty of sighs and laments.
Gripping […], expressive […], moving.
Crescendo, February/March 2016

The wonderful Dorothee Mields: […] she controls her voice perfectly in all registers, shining brightly, slim, with warmth and declamatory strength, with moving restraint. This is charismatic singing. And this is delicate playing: the L’Orfeo Barockorchester proves itself receptive and unfolds Bach’s sensual score in all its fine nuances. The spoken and unspoken texts relate a longing which is deeper and more universal than words can express. Only one person was able to do this. Bach forever.
Bayern Klassik, CD Tipp, Andreas Grabner, 23 February 2016

Or put is as an understatement, Dorothee Mields and the L’Orfeo Barockorchester, directed by Michi Gaigg, simply make good music.
Fono Forum, Star of the Month, Matthias Hengelbrock, March 2016

The lightness and fluidity of these performances, technically impeccable without revealing any of the considerable effort behind that perfection, make one hope that more Bach sacred works will be on the group’s studio docket.
The Washington Post, Charles T. Downey, 6 May 2016

High-quality., 15 January 2016

The oboes have ample opportunity to excel in this recording, so do the solo flute and the viola obligato; the continuo breathes solid serenity […].
Musik und Theater, Reinmar Wagner, January/February 2016
