5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent music and performances 22 April 2004
J S Bach's Magnificat is one of his most accessible choral works, becauseit is short and tuneful. It would be a good starting point for those whowant to develop an appreciation of his religious or choral music, which,after all, is the bulk of his output of 1080 works.
Herreweghe'sperformance is superb. I highly recommend this recording.
You may alsoenjoy the performances of CPE and JC Bach Magnificats, conducted bySchneider, which sound more like Papa Haydn than Daddy Bach.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best 26 Oct 2003
By Philip L. Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Phillipe Herreweghe captures the Bach aesthetic so completely and beautifully that I am left in absolute awe. His use of original instruments and fantasic soloists creates a perfectly rich texture I have not heard in any other recording.
Other recordings have loud, abnoxious instrumentations, and the soloists employ so much vibrato that any melody is lost in the clamour.
Phillipe Herreweghe brings a marvelous intimacy to the atmosphere, and the authenticity of his interpretation is unmatched. I highly recommend this fine recording of one of Bach's most beautiful works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Insightful and transcendental reading of the Magnificat; equally magnificent Cantata BWV 80. 27 Nov 2013
By Abert - Published on Amazon.com
This 1990 recording by French conductor Philippe Herreweghe and his historical-instrument Collegium Vocale of J S Bach's familiar `Magnificat' offered some new perspectives. The Magnificat comprises of challenging vocal lines, and it is never easy to perform the piece in a transparent and serene manner. Herreweghe manages to tone down the work's apparent enthusiasm, delivering the choral movements with Gallic elegance, rhythmic and transparent, in place of the usual imposing and big sound. The difference is evident already in the first section, and one result of Herreweghe's approach is an appealing balance between the choral and solo vocal sections. In a piece where solo or ensemble music making up more than half of the work's 12 sections, that makes a lot of sense, and the Herreweghe's hand-picked soloists are aptly wonderful, offering for the most part absolutely ravishing performances.
Veteran soprano Barbara Schlick offered a hushed, wondrous "Quia respexit humilitatem", and French countertenor Gérard Lesne sung the alto solo "Esurientes" with a lush and rich instrument so uncommon with mezzo-sopranos. Only the second soprano Agnès Mellon disturbs the transcendent mood with her strangely aspirated "t" sounds.
The unusual version of the likewise familiar Cantata No. 80, "Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott," is a bonus inclusion; Herreweghe programs a revision by Bach's son Wilhelm Friedemann that includes trumpets and timpani. Again, Barbara Schlick offered a terrific rendition of the soprano solo in true melismatic style and ethereal glory. This Lutheran piece is a contrast in the religious sense to the Marian-oriented Magnificat.
There are many other versions of BWV 243 offering gutsier interpretations, but there are some unearthly delights here that will certainly please Bach aficionados and general listeners alike.
Unreservedly recommended.
