Retrospect in the Classical Charts
11 April 2011
Retrospect Ensemble's new recording of 'JS Bach Easter and Ascension Oratorios' has entered the UK Classical Chart at number 15 and the Specialist Chart at number 3! This is another great result for the ensemble who are riding high after the album was named 'Classical Record of the Week' in the Sunday Times.
The recording, conducted by Matthew Halls, features the talents of some star singers: Carolyn Sampson (soprano), Iestyn Davies (countertenor), James Gilchrist (tenor) and Peter Harvey (bass).
"Top-drawer Bach throughout, beautifully recorded and documented by Linn." Sunday Times
"This is a landmark Bach recording." Early Music Review
"Johann Sebastian himself would give this one not 5 but 10 stars as well." SA-CD.net
