Notes & Reviews:

Monica Huggett has produced numerous best-selling and acclaimed recordings for Avie, notably the Grammy®-nominated Bach Orchestral Suites, which made the Top 10 of Billboard's Traditional Classical Chart. This ear-opening version, Monica claims, restored Suite No. 2 to its original instrumentation. She makes a similar case with her new recording of Bach's Saint John Passion, placing oboes where we typically hear flutes and arguing that Bach's original score was produced during his early years in Leipzig, where flutes were unavailable to him.

"Charles Daniels weaves his narration with beguiling eloquence and Tyler Duncan sings 'Eilt, ihr angefochten' with poised agility...Huggett's astonishingly quick pace for the opening chorus 'Herr, unser Herrscher' does not prohibit a smooth line from Cappella Romana." -Gramophone

"A clean reading that, despite being on the pacy side, feels informed with a certain spirituality. The players of the Portland Baroque Orchestra give a stylish account of themselves. The Evangelist, Charles Daniels, delivers his lines with authority and intense dramatic involvement." -The Sunday Times

International Record Review, July/August 2012
Charles Daniels proves a communicative and consistently musical narrator...in the choruses this is audibly a small choir rather than an augmented consort. The chorales are given a detail-heavy presentation, with run-ons, dynamics and articulations carefully worked out.

MusicWeb International, May 2012
This is a 'compact', contained, close and appropriately intimate account...There is less declamation, more narration. Although there are places where the singing has to be described as imperfect, on the whole it's convincing and pleasing...Jacques-Olivier Chartier is spontaneous, alive and with every effort to be 'real' and immediate, rather than oratorical.

BBC Music Magazine, May 2012
The opening chorus is the animated - and fastest - I've heard on disc, and the crowd can hardly wait to interrupt the Evangelist in the trial scene. Charles Daniels's narration is focused on meaning rather than vocal lyricism, and the harpsichord accompaniment emphasises the theatrical quality of his role...a distinctive contribution to the St John Passions on disc.
