John Passion - Dunedin Consort - Sunday Times
Yes, it's that time of year when Passions proliferate. In 2013, it's the John Passion - as Linn's cover calls it - that gets rival recordings. Linn offers a liturgical context with organ voluntaries, and congregational chorales by other composers. Linn's Jesus, Matthew Brook, is more mellifluous than Hyperion's hectoring Neal Davies. Linn offers a fascinating extra dimension.
