JS Bach Matthew Passion - Dunedin Consort - Daily Mail
This beautifully presented set delivers Bach's Easter message in the fashionable light, relatively swift way with the Dunedin Consort and Players, based in Scotland. The small choir sings with fine tone and the musicians make lovely sounds under John Butt's direction. Nicholas Mulroy is an excellent Evangelist and Matthew Brook is a suitably grave Jesus. There are a few, minor irritations, but these disappear when ranged against the high standard of the performance.
