About

This coming together of two current dynamic musical forces in the Flemish Radio Choir and the Danish conductor Bo Holten in the music of J. S. Bach signals the latest development in Glossa's association with the Brussels-based professional choral ensemble, which has already seen the artistry, versatility and flexibility of the 24 singers displayed in Kodály's Missa brevis and Rachmaninov's Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom.
 
The greatness of Bach's music is mirrored by its approachability from a kaleidoscopic range of performance styles. The Flemish Radio Choir (FRC) has the intention, in this repertoire, of presenting an alternative to the authentic early performance style. In an interview within the CD booklet, Bo Holten acknowledges his awareness and appreciation of the scholarly developments of recent decades concerning the singing of such music with one voice to a part whilst stressing his own artistic impulses as a choral director and also as a composer himself.
 
This Bach recording represents the fruit of many months of preparation by Holten working with the FRC in rehearsal and in concert.
