Notes & Reviews:

Parallel to the forthcoming John Eliot Gardiner Collection and the Archiv Produktion box, here's a famous compilation of Great Bach Choruses, newly represented just in time for Easter 2013.

It comes with a fresh cover, liner notes and texts and translations.

The acclaimed Monteverdi Choir sings a selection of celebrated Bach choruses under their director John Eliot Gardiner, one of the most versatile and exciting conductor of our time. For Gardiner, Bach is probably the only composer whose music is so rich, so challenging to the performer and so spiritually uplifting to performer and listener alike.

Includes selections from the Passions, the Mass in B minor, Christmas Oratorio and several cantatas.

Le Monde
If there were a Nobel prize for choirs, the Monteverdi Choir should be its laureate.
