Notes & Reviews:
The Matthew Passion 1754 (The Danzig Passion) is a significant work constructed very differently from other oratorial passions. It features a unique formal structure: there are no arias but instead 34 hymns, which have a similar function to meditative arias. The text is (with the exception of the hymns) pure Bible text (Matthew ch. 26, 27). The work is the only known Matthew Passion from Danzig. This is without question the only recording of such a piece on the CD market today.Notes & Reviews:
