Notes & Reviews:

The St. John Passion is a drama of outstanding intensity whose edition was not definitively set by Bach. There were four public concerts that gave different organizations of pieces: 1724, 1725, 1728, and 1746/47. To convey the importance of this work, which goes far beyond purely liturgical purpose, Benoit Haller chose his ideal version from the four - the one he felt was the most "balanced, correct, and edifying."
