Comments:Rich Rosenwald said:

A nice, mid-priced arrangement of these two wonderful choral works by Bach. Munchinger's orchestra is great and reminded me of Karl Richter. I loved the tempi in the Easter Oratorio and the singing is wonderful. This is a mid-priced Decca Ovation CD released in the UK and Europe in 1999.

Recommended Highly.
