Goebel's poetic fantasy . . . raises the Archive set [of Biber's Mystery Sonatas] on to an altogether high plane . . . Time and again I was carried along by Goebel's resonant sonorities, his lively sense of colour and his ability to make strong and telling contrasts. Furthermore there is both an affecting poignancy and a nobility of sentiment in his playing.

[Goebel's] recording has been enormously influential. Everything's in place, served up with his trademark panache, a lithe continua group with the cello a discreet presence, and the zaniest "Passacaglia" on record . . . he set the bar at a new level technically and interpretatively: the final "earthquake" variation in "The Crucifixion" is as dramatic as one could wish.
