About

The reissue of a glorious recording of J S Bach’s sacred masterwork, the St Matthew Passion.

This performance from the seventies brings together two of the most esteemed choirs of Germany: the Thomanerchor Leipzig and the Dresdner Kreuzchor, both with traditions going back to the times of the great Cantor Johann Sebastian.

The Leipzig Gewandhausorchester and the choirs are conducted by the two brothers Rudolf and Erhard Mauersberger, both famous for their deep understanding of the Baroque musical language. An excellent line-up of soloists.

“Deeply moving”, the Gramophone wrote of this performance at the time of release. It is indeed a set to treasure as the testimony of a deeply felt historical tradition of Bach performance.
