St. Matthew Passion

The performance as a whole quivers with life: first-class soloists (Anthony Rolfe Johnson, Andreas Schmidt, Barbara Bonney, Ann Monoyios, Anne Sofie von Otter, Michael Chance, Howard Crook, Olaf Bär, Cornelius Hauptmann), wonderfully cast in their respective roles, plus a performance by the choir and orchestra that is nothing short of exemplary. This recording, made in the spacious atmosphere of Snape Maltings in England, is well-dubbed and extraordinarily vivid.
