180g Vinyl Triple LP!
First Vinyl Re-Release Of This Legendary Recording!

When Sir John Eliot Gardiner, released his first recording of Bach's St Matthew Passion in 1989, it was considered a milestone in style and interpretation and remains so to this day - with his approach to the work as celebrated as his first-class soloists: his great Monteverdi Choir and the splendid Baroque Soloists. Now available on vinyl for the first time since the original release, pressed on 180-gram vinyl taken from the original sources.

What makes Gardiner's St. Matthew Passion stand out in the face of stiff competition is, more than anything, his vivid sense of theatre ... Here we have a first-rate group of solo voices, immediately responsive choral groups and refined obbligato and orchestral playing.
