Product description

Product Description

Despite their exquisite beauty, featuring splendid choruses and deeply moving arias, there are relatively few recordings of Bach's Lutheran Masses. On this new collection The Sixteen orchestra is joined by just eight singers to perform the Masses, allowing the beauty of the virtuosic vocal lines to be heard with absolute clarity.

Sometimes called 'Missa brevis', the Lutheran Masses feature almost no Lutheran material at all. Musically, they are almost entirely made up of movements borrowed from Bach's Cantatas and their beauty is in the fact that they represent the composer's own choice of his finest Cantata movements. It is 20 years since The Sixteen last recorded such a wealth of Bach's music, making this a uniquely exciting project. Volume II will be released in the spring of 2014.

Review

The freshness, agility and precision of the performances, animated by Christophers's buoyant direction, are a constant pleasure. --Gramophone, Dec'13

Christophers's customary precision and gracefulness are evident throughout. Performance **** Recording **** --BBC Music Magazine, Jan'14

The sixteen's singers acquit themselves superbly and , particularly impressive, throw off the exacting passagework in fast movements with crystalline sparkle. --IRR, Jan'14

The performances are excellent and the sound quality pleasingly clear and natural. --IRR, May'14
