Bach St. Matthew Passion DVD

"A top flight recording of Bach's monumental opus ... a DVD of exceptional merit ... This is easily a release that I will turn on without the video many times, and it is also the equal of virtually any audio-only release on the market. This is how concerts should be filmed. For Bach with purpose, understanding, and love, you need look nowhere else."
