Gardiner had a successful collaboration with Deutsche Grammophon from the 1980s, but the company was willing to release only a small number of the Bach cantatas which were recorded live in 2000. SDG set out to release a complete set of CDs of the Bach Cantata pilgrimage's concerts. In October 2005 its very first release, Bach Cantatas, volume 1 (SDG101), won "Record of the Year" at the Gramophone Awards. In 2006, at the behest of the Bach Archive in Leipzig, SDG released the first recording of a newly discovered piece by Bach, ‘Alles mit Gott’. In 2011, by which time nearly all Bach's church cantatas had been released, SDG's Bach Cantata Pilgrimage series earned a Gramophone Award for special achievement.

Famous quotes containing the words recordings and/or bach:
“All radio is dead. Which means that these tape recordings Im making are for the sake of future history. If any.”
—Barré Lyndon (18961972)
“The authors conviction on this day of New Year is that music begins to atrophy when it departs too far from the dance; that poetry begins to atrophy when it gets too far from music; but this must not be taken as implying that all good music is dance music or all poetry lyric. Bach and Mozart are never too far from physical movement.”
—Ezra Pound (18851972)
