Gramophone Selects Dunedin Consort In Top 10 List

14 January 2014

Gramophone has published a guide to the ten most essential recordings by J.S. Bach.

Gramophone states that 'once bitten the Bach Bug will take you on a journey of almost limitless reward.'

Here's the review: 'The Dunedin Consort's singing conveys the ebb, flow and shading of Bach's choruses with ease and naturalness. The sonorities of full homophonic chords concluding the grandest choruses are thrilling, whereas the densely polyphonic choral passages always possess clarity and logic thanks to the disciplined interplay of the singers. Butt's insightful direction and scholarship, integrated with the Dunedin's extremely accomplished instrumental playing and consort singing, amount to an enthralling and revelatory collective interpretation of the Mass in B minor.'
