Dunedin Consort’s latest release of the John Passion is selected as the Gramophone “Recording of the Month” (March ’13). The solo line-up includes Joanne Lunn (soprano), Nicholas Mulroy (tenor), Clare Wilkinson (contralto) and Robert Davies (baritone). The University of Glasgow Chapel Choir and the Dunedin Consort are directed by John Butt.
This is the premiere recording of J.S. Bach’s John Passion heard for the first time within its original liturgical context. This recording marks the return of Dunedin Consort’s star-studded cast. Director John Butt has given listeners an interpretation that will provide a refreshing outlook on this masterpiece and will show the John Passion in a completely new light.
