Notes and Editorial Reviews

Johnson, Schmidt, Bonney, Monoyios, Von Otter, Chance, Crook, Hauptmann; Monteverdi Choir, London Oratory Junior Choir, English Baroque Soloists/John Eliot Gardiner. Archiv 427648 [3 CDs]

Gardiner’s reading of the St. Matthew Passion is conceived and executed on the highest level, an example of period practice that is unlikely to be bettered any time soon. The performance as a whole vibrates with life: soloists are first-rate, and wonderfully well chosen for their respective parts, and the work of chorus and orchestra is exemplary. The recording, made in 1988 in the spacious ambience of The Maltings, Snape, near Aldeburgh, is well balanced and exceptionally vivid. – Ted Libbey, author of The NPR Guide to Building a
