Les Voix Baroques and Arion Baroque Orchestra combine their outstanding talents for this new ATMA recording of the St. John Passion by Bach, under the direction of organist and conductor Alexander Weimann. This recording was produced at the Chapel of the Grand Séminaire in Montreal, following performances during the 2010 Bach Festival in Montreal. The St. John Passion follows the rules of an oratorio: The story, – essentially the last days of Christ’s life – is drawn from the Gospel according to John, and features commentary throughout in the form of choruses sung by the choir. In this work, Bachreaches an incomparable profundity of expressiveness not by rote association of musical motif with image,, but by the beauty of his melodies, the feeling associated with various keys, and the richness of his harmonies.

"...Where this recording really scores is in Weimann’s thoughtful and well-judged direction... an enjoyable, even if not quite first-rate, package."

Christopher Price - International Record Review - December 2012


"...The instruments are discreet and yet integral, and the quality of production adds up to a very significant, incrementally impressive new reading."

Jonathan Freeman-Attwood - Gramophone magazine - August 2012


"... The twelve singers are robust and confident in the opening chorus ... singers and players are well-attuned to each other, able to give good breathing-spaces without  appearing to interrupt the rhythmic flow. So there is lots to commend, some very beautiful  singing and playing with tempi nicely judged ..."

David Stancliffe - Early Music Review - April 2012


"...The St. John Passion, probably written in 1724, shortly after Bach arrived in Leipzig to become the music director at St. Thomas’s Church, is one of the great monuments of Western sacred music. This fine recording does it full justice."

John Terauds - Musical Toronto - 7 February 2012


"...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“Herr,unser Herrscher” through the recitatives, arias and choruses of the “Betrayal and Arrest,” “Denial of Peter,” “Interrogation and Scourging,” “Condemnation and Crucifixion,” “Death of Jesus” and “Burial” of Christ to the peaceful final chorale “Ach Herr, lass dein leib Engelein” (Ah Lord, let thine own angels dear…) almost two hours later, our attention is held without flagging in this glorious performance..."

David Olds - The WholeNote - 1 April 2012


          ***½
“...It moves rapidly [St. John Passion], with a great deal of contrast, and one of the strengths of this imposing performance – along with the remarkable clarity and focused sound of the ensemble singing – is the way it maintains dramatic momentum often balancing different levels of activity and meaning within the same aria or chorus... Among several stand-out arias are alto Meg Bragle’s luxuriously paced Es ist vollbracht, bass Stephan MacLeod’s sonorous Betrachte, meine Seel and an unusually brisk Erwäge, sung by tenor Lawrence Wiliford.”
