Beautifuly performed, however................,
This review is from: Bach: St John Passion (Audio CD)
This is a lovely recording of this masterpiece by J S Bach.
However Amazon did not say that it is sung in German; this in itself is not a huge problem however; our choir will be performing this work in the summer, so it would have been useful, if it was sung in English, even though Bach obviously wrote it in German. Harry Christopher and the sixteen always put across the sheer beauty of choral pieces like St John and this recording, does not disappoint.

There is a recording of the John Passion conducted by Benjamin Britten which is performed in English. There is also one by Robert Shaw I believe, but I know less about this one.
