Description

Music for Holy Week & Easter on CD

This release gathers outstanding sacred vocal music from the Renaissance, Baroque and Classical eras recounting perhaps the most dramatic and moving story in all of the Christian canon: the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Christ. In addition to these masterworks of the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries is the St John Passion of Arvo Part, the Estonian whose captivating, minimal, crystalline music has made him one of the most-performed living composers in the world. The stunning performances from expert choirs and soloists cover iconic works like Handel's Messiah, the St John and St Matthew Passions of J.S. Bach, Haydn's Stabat Mater and Seven Last Words and three of the prolific Telemann's more than 20 extant Passion settings and several Passion oratorios, along with hauntingly beautiful Renaissance polyphony and lesser-known gems of the Italian Baroque.
