Magnificent music and performances,
This review is from: Bach: Magnificat in D, BWV 243; Cantata BWV 80 /Herreweghe (Audio CD)
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.
