Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Great Hall of University College School, London, Englan.

Third in the critically acclaimed series from American Gramaphone, The Bach Collection continues with the tradition of focusing on the great composers. The 15 pieces included are Rutter's personal favorites. Ten of these were written purely for instruments, and the other five are from the great wealth of Bach's vocal music, with voice parts transcribed for instruments, a practice Bach himself happily followed on occasion. You will hear cantatas, suites, concertos and airs, with an emphasis on music which dances, pulsates with life and has a profoundly joyful sense of humanity. ~ Backroads Music/Heartbeats
