COLLEGIUM VOCALE GENT HERREWEGHE
Two of Philippe Herreweghe's finest Bach recordings are brought together here for the first time in a deluxe, specially-priced five-disc boxed set. Included are two settings of the Easter story - his 1998 recording of the St. Matthew Passion - a perennial catalog bestseller - and his 2001 version of the St. John Passion. Both feature the Collegium Vocale of Ghent and stellar soloists including Evangelists Ian Bostridge and Mark Padmore.
