About

"The major selling point of this recording is Howard Crook, finest of all evangelists, who astonishes with his ability to leap from dark bass notes to an upper register glowing with soft colours... The St Matthew Passion has never sounded darker - or more beautiful." - Damian Thompson, Top Choice, The Classic Collection, The Daily Telegraph, 3 April 2004

Recorded 1984
