J.S. Bach: St. Matthew Passion
Dieterich Buxtehude - Abendmusik, a selection of cantatas.
Göteborg Baroque Arts Ensemble
Magnus Kjellson, organ, conductor
Recorded at Örgryte nya kyrka, Göteborg, September 2000
Be prepared to duck when the trumpets and tympani enter full force in Schlagt, Künstler! die Pauken. This is a wedding cantata using a full choir and soloists. Their balance is impeccable and German diction is spot on... ...I cannot recommend this release too highly for musicality, program and sound quality!
