Bad timing! This one does fill a gap, but will, for most of us, arrive after Easter. Recorded in April 2014!

Sounds good to me.

I find it hard to pick a favorite recording of this work. There are too many wonderful versions. ;-) We are blessed.

And of course I am eager to listen to this one (in Mch) as well.

This is not the full version, it is an arrangement made by Mendelssohn.

Felix Mendelssohn shortened the St Matthew Passion for the Berlin performance by ten arias, four accompagnato recitatives and six chorales. For the 1841 performance he then reinstated five movements.

the de Vriend Christmas Oratorio on Channel sacd is outstanding. I wish that this new sacd was just the Bach edition.
