“very beautiful singing and playing with tempi nicely judged.”
- David Stancliffe, Early Music Review

“[the performance] has a luminous and gently penetrating emotional impact (with one of the most moving accounts of ‘Es ist vollbracht’ in recent years from Meg Bragle). The instruments are discreet and yet integral and the quality of the production adds up to a very significant, incrementally impressive new reading.”
- Johnathan Freeman-Attwood, Gramophone

“All are in great form here, with particular kudos to chorister soprano Shannon Mercer who shines in the aria ‘Ich folge dir gleichfalls mit freudigen Schritten.’ From the motoric opening [on]... our attention is held without flagging in this glorious performance.”
- David Olds, The WholeNote

Les Voix Baroques and the Arion Baroque Orchestra combine their outstanding talents for this recording of the 1724 version of J.S. Bach's St. John Passion, under the direction of Alexander Weimann. Written while Bach was working as Thomaskantor in Leipzig, it is one of only two Passions he composed that survives in full, interspersing settings of Gospel of John with chorales and madrigal-like verses. Recorded at the Chapel of the Grand Séminaire in Montréal following performances at the 2010 Bach Festival, this recording features soloists Jan Kobow as The Evangelist, Stephan MacLeod as Jesus, Joshua Hopkins as Peter, and Nathaniel Watson as Pilate.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
