This review is from: Bach: St Matthew Passion (Audio CD)
I found the instrumental accompaniment harsh and felt it detracted from the beauty of the voices. I am aware that it is creating a performance more in its original style, but for my modern hearing , a more gentle accompaniment would be more in tune with the subject.
