I love the opening, the rest is a little harder for me,
This review is from: J.S. Bach: St. Matthew Passion, BWV 244 / Part One - No.1 Chorus I/II: "Kommt, ihr Töchter, helft mir klagen" (MP3 Download)
Love the opening and think it's stunning but personally find the rest a little harder to get my head around. Believe me, I've tried (went to see it sung live one Easter) but find that unless I'm looking at a score I just nod off. I feel the same way about St. John's Passion.
I really enjoyed this version of the opening number, the tempo is just about right and I'd recommend buying just this one track if you're trying to expand your Bach horizons beyond the Goldbergs.
