Notes & Reviews:

"The Biber work is the same one recorded by Ton Koopman...in general the two performances are both good enough that a choice can be based on the coupling (Koopman added a Vespers by Biber). The other work on this disc was recorded once before by Nikolaus Harnoncourt in 1970. This version is an easy replacement for the older recording, capturing the anguish of the familiar text...The sound is endearing, the notes are thorough, and texts come with translations..." -Weber, Fanfare
