Notes and Editorial Reviews

Philippe Herreweghe’s lasting interest in the works of the Cantor of Leipzig has turned him into a man whose views evolve as he delves deeper into his subject matter. The joy and pride that he feels in having forged musical tools that have reached maturity, has led him to come back on a Missa that has never ceased to intrigue him: the Catholic Missa of Protestant composer Bach. Together with a handful of excellent soloists and a Collegium vocally and instrumentally at its best, Herreweghe delivers a work that must be savored.
