Product description

Product Description

This will play on conventional CD players A landmark recording of J.S. Bach s St John Passion, sung in English the first for over forty-five years. With communicative zeal, beautiful articulation, and focused energy, the 100 voices of CEFC lend precision and power to the performance alongside the instruments of the Bach Camerata, one of the finest UK baroque orchestras, all under the inspired direction of David Temple. They are joined by a superb array of soloists including Robert Murray, Ashley Riches and Sophie Bevan.

Review

4* Performance / 4* Recording: ...there's plenty to recommend a recording purposefully conducted by David Temple that also swims against the tide with a hefty 100-plus chorus mustering venom aplenty. The solo line-up is without a weak link; among its glories Sophie Bevan's deeply affecting 'Zerfliesse, mein Herze', Benjamin Hulett's finely nuanced 'Erwage', and Robin Blaze's exquisitely judged 'Es ist vollbracht'. Robert Murray's Evangelist holds everything together with narrative acuity. --BBC Music Magazine, May'17

...by the end of the opening chorus and the Evangelist's first gripping appearance I was completely hooked...one will struggle to find more committed, well-balanced, agile and crisp singing than that of the Crouch End Festival Chorus, who are on top form throughout. Under David Temple s inspired direction they can switch in an instant from a focused fervour (in their chorales) to the most vengeful scornfulness imaginable...Congratulations to all concerned on producing such a buoyant, absorbing and sonically thrilling recording. --Gramophone, April'17

The First St John Passion in English in nearly half a century surpasses its venerable predecessor, Benjamin Britten's 1971 Decca recording with Peter Pears. Less adrenalized than Marc Minkowski's recent, German sung Erato account with Les Musicians du Louvre, its drama and emotional potency derive instead from the deeply felt, musically sublime and spiritually ardent performances marshalled with palpable intensity by David Temple. Wholly authentic and immediate, John Jenkins s eloquent New Novello Choral Edition is, in itself, something of a marvel, prompting richly characterised contributions from all concerned. Robert Murray s poetically alert Evangelist bests Minkowski's Lothar Odinius and is markedly less arch and stilted than Pears for Britten. The heartfelt and direct Jesus of Ashely Riches is, appropriately, more human than Britten's declamatory Gwynne Howell. The Bach Camerata play with idiomatic certainty and utter conviction, the 100- plus voices of the Crouch End Festival Chorus intensely fervent yet exquisitely nuanced. In a word: essential./// Sung in English, rather than the original German, with considerable gusto by the Crouch End Festival Chorus, it bears all the best aspects of the tradition of choral society performances in the UK: enthusiastic, upfront singing and an impressive, effusive body of sound from a massed choir./// --Classical Ear, June'17/// Classical Source, July'17
