Bach composed tht: St. Matthew Passion during his canturshlp of the Leipzig Thomasschule, the choir of which provided the music at the famous Church of SI. Thomas where it was sung for the first time on Good Friday, I 72~. The Orchestra of the Gewandhaus concerts also has an illustrious history going back to
Bach's own day. In association with soloists of great distinction and international reputation they have achieved a noble performance of this incomparable work, and all who have been waiting for an adequate recording of the St. Matthew Passion will find in this set what many may consider to be the ideal rendering.
