HMA 1951782

“… an essential purchase for every Bach lover.”

J.S. Bach: Magnificat BWV243a, Cantata: Christen ätzet diesen Tag BWV63 Carolyn Sampson, Collegium Vocale Gent, Philippe Herreweghe

glorious – and it’s the ringing splendour of this performance which first grabs our attention: the exhilarating singing, the vibrant orchestral playing and the rhetorical command of the soloists. But there’s more; the polished conviction of Philippe Herreweghe’s performance fully rehabilitates Bach’s original E flat score. The differences between the earlier and later versions of the piece are no mere footnotes here: Herreweghe celebrates every unfamiliar detail and brings a fresh edge to the whole work, and makes it an essential purchase for every  Bach lover.” Andrew McGregor – BBC Radio 3 CD Review,  Building a Library Choice, March 2015
