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
