Notes and Editorial Reviews

A new recording from Ricercar Consort is always special and this one is no exception. The enterprising Mirare label presents the group's powerful new recording of J.S. Bach's St. John Passion. Although not as popular as the St. Matthew Passion, the St. John is equally rich with the invention and beautiful melodies that Bach is famous for. The soloists here are on top form and their truly wondrous performance will surely elicit raves from critics. Last year's Bach Magnificat with similar forces received excellent reviews including a Gramophone Editor's Choice and a BBC CD Review disc of the week.
