One of the best recordings of Bach's St. John Passion. Originally released in a deluxe box set at full price, this budget priced re-issue has been brought out in a slim package, but retains all the charm and extras of the orginal. This budget version was a new release for December 2009. Great soloists and a great orechestra make tius recording simply... great!
