Customer Review

on 31 October 2000
The whole work is performed with a sense of awe and mystery as bach takes us on a journey of faith from tragic destiny to the ultimate hope. The story of our saviors walk to calvary is captured with unerring wisdom by Gardner and his select group of choral and orchestral forces. This recording should not be missed by those who love the deep spiritual essence that Bach prescribed to his music. The Monteverdi choir and English Baroque soloists deserve high praise in performing this most difficult and touching of Bachs sacred works. John Eliot Gardner has indeed captured on disc a monumental achivement that Bach himself would have wanted to share with those who love the sacred arts. This set can be highly recommended and will be an important addition to the Bach anniversary in 2000. Please enjoy this fine recording...
