Notes & Reviews:

It is with great delight that CORO announces the release of the first of two new recordings of J.S. Bach's Lutheran Masses by The Sixteen. The fact that The Sixteen has not performed or recorded such a wealth of Bach's music in nearly 20 years makes this a uniquely exciting project! Sometimes called "Missa brevis," the Masses are almost entirely made up of movements borrowed from Bach's Cantatas but, while they are often overshadowed by the more famous Mass in B minor, the beauty of these short Masses is that they represent Bach's own choice of his finest Cantata movements. Despite their exquisite beauty, featuring splendid choruses and deeply moving arias, there are relatively few recordings of the Lutheran Masses.

Opera Now
[The Sixteen] performs with outstanding virtuosity and dedication.

BBC Music Magazine
As musically intelligent and invigorating as we have come to expect from this ensemble, with first rate solo singing and orchestral playing.
