Notes & Reviews:
Barthold Heinrich Brockes' poem Der fur die Sunde der Welt gemarterte und sterbende Jesus is one of the most influential and best-known Passion libretti of the early 18th century. Handel's setting, which was first performed April 3, 1719, stands in the context of a whole series of compositions that are based on libretti by Brockes.

Peter Neumann strikes a powerful blow for some reassessment of Handel's version. He is assisted above all by Markus Brutscher's Evangelist which has urgency, cogency and clarity in equal measure. Markus Flaig's Jesus is also effective as is the relatively modest contribution by the Cologne Chamber Choir.
