The award-winning consort present the first recording to show Bach's masterpiece with the composer's final revisions - a benchmark recording. ------------------- “Crisp singing and clear diction is matched by outstanding technical ability by the singers.” Sunday Herald -------------------- • The Dunedin Consort has established a reputation for performing familiar works from the Baroque era in ways which shed fresh light on the original performance: this new recording presents the Matthew Passion for the first time with Bach’s final revisions of scoring, as performed around 1742 (its most familiar form is the 1736 version). • John Butt and the Dunedin Consort recreate the instrumentation and vocal scoring that Bach employed to deliver a unique and historically informed recording. Most striking is the use of eight principal voices (four in each of the two choirs). • Matthew Passion, one of Bach’s most celebrated choral masterpieces, is an emotional and challenging musical experience delivered with style and insight by the Dunedin Consort. • In 2007, the Dunedin Consort’s tenth anniversary year, the group reached a new level of critical acclaim, culminating in the Classic FM Gramophone Award for Messiah in the Baroque Vocal category. This is the only such award presented to a Scottish group in recent years (and the first to an ensemble that is not a Scottish National Company or BBC orchestra) and now gives the Dunedin Consort a truly international reputation. • The Dunedin Consort has won praise for the natural style of their soloists (an authoritative bass and a superb contralto The Guardian) and renown for the virtuosity of the singers. • The Dunedin Consort has appeared at festivals in Belgium, Canada, France, Italy, Spain, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands as well as at the Edinburgh International Festival, has appeared on BBC 2 and BBC 4 television and been broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and BBC Scotland.
