This is Koopman's reconstruction of the work. Bear in mind that only the liibretto survives; so Koopman has had to import numbers from other works where the words fit, and compose his own numbers in the style of Bach in order to fill the gaps. When I first listened to this, I made the mistake of approaching it as if it were a work by Bach; so there were things in it that did not quite gel for me. I then listened to it again, accepting that it is, in effect, Koopman's work in the style of Bach. I then began to find genuine enjoyment in it as a musical and dramatic work. It is technically well recorded and videographed, although at one point the camera zooms in on the guy singing the part of Judas Iscariot a couple of minutes before he actually starts singing: a quirky but of mis-direction, which paradoxically I found quite endearing! The acid test, for me, is whether I would feature this DVD at one of my periodic music evenings to which I invite my friends. The answer: yes, I would. It's good music (albeit pseudo-Bach), it's entertaining and it's different.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully done! 14 Dec. 2011
By M. K. Solomon - Published on

Being a longtime fan of St. Matthew's Passion and St. John's Passion (I'm a teacher, and always listen to them while grading tests, to maintain emotional balance and perspective), I was reluctant to raise my hopes concerning Koopman's St. Mark, because I knew this has been pieced together to represent the lost work. However, it is beautifully done. While I recognized some piecing-in of cantatas, they were logically placed and furthered St. Mark's story beautifully. The narrator (St. Mark) has an expressive, lovely and moving voice, which communicates effectively and musically. The musical quality is high overall, however: Koopman, instrumentalists and singers all shine! I recommend it highly.
