John Passion - Dunedin Consort - Gramophone

In this recording by the Dunedin Consort, not only does the reconstruction of the Good Friday Vespers liturgy of Bach's Leipzig give this Passion context, but also John Butt's limitless wit and invention with Bach create an immediacy that makes it feel completely new. Hearing one of Bach's greatest masterworks for the "first time", again, is the most joyous experience.
