Ten years separate this 1988 recording of the Bach B Minor Mass for Virgin Veritas from Philippe Herreweghe's later recording with Harmonia Mundi:it makes for an interesting comparison.Amazon reviewers on the other side of the Atlantic clearly love this first version for it's naturalness and purity - and one can understand why.Herreweghe's unique vision of interpreting Bach - a vision which even distinguishes him from other period-instrument performers - was evident in the early days when he was "discovered" by the late Gustav Leonhardt,and has remained virtually unchanged in the intervening years.So,to that extent,if you already have the later version,don't expect any surprises.
However,repeated listening to the two versions does highlight important differences,some of which - the choice of soloists for example - may be largely down to personal taste.Peter Kooy (bass) has been consistently part of Herreweghe's line-up for many years,and his performances can always be expected to produce singing of heart-felt commitment and faultless technique.Kooy in fact appears on both versions,the only difference being that he shares the lower voice honours with Hanno Muller-Brachmann in the later version.No tantalising choices to be made there then.In fact the only soloist from the version under review who would emphatically be my first choice is the principal soprano Barbara Schlick.That is not in any way to question the quality of Johannette Zomer's contribution,but Schlick for me is the unique Bach soprano of our time, and if for no other reason,might persuade others to reach for this version - even if they already possess the later one.

This is an extremely sensitive recording of a composition that has attracted much academic attention over the decades with regard to performance practice. There is no one answer, so this rendition stands alone. And very good it is too. Fast delivery. All excellent.

Herreweghe applies his hugely successful "cantata" formula to the B minor Mass with wonderful results. His usual team, along with the Collegium Vocale choir and orchestra, is all here and the sound is absolutely beautiful.

This is another classy Bach rendition.
I am no musicologist, so there's no point in my attempting deep analysis. Suffice to say that this is one of the greatest pieces of music in the Baroque canon and performed thoughtfuly but vigourously in this recording.

Thouroughly reccomended

Simply a beautiful recording. It feels as though the singers are letting the music flow without forcing any notes. Runs are sung in a fluid manner without resorting to the 'choppy' sound favoured by some choirs.
