This review is from: Bach: St Matthew Passion (Audio CD)
Unfortunately the St Matthew Passion is sung in German on this set. The description did not specify this and the album cover was in English. However, the music is still useful for rehearsal purposes to sing along with the score. For interested parties Oldham Choral are singing this at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester on Palm Sunday, 1 April 2012, at 7.00 pm.

This review makes me laugh. What did you expect from Johann Sebastian Bach, sung in Swahili! English recordings are however available.Bach: St Matthew Passion (in English)

David Fuller says:
St Matthew Passion was written in German by a German in Germany.
English text performances are the exception and will specify as much on the CD.
Hence your 3/5 score is rather unfair to JSB et al.
Especially as you got a free advert into your review.
