Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
Dunedin Consort / John Butt

This is the premiere recording of J.S. Bach's Magnificat heard for the first time within its original liturgical context, alongside the beautiful Christmas Cantata. The first 1000 customers will also receive a free bonus disc of highlights from the Consort's Gramophone Award-winning seasonal favourite 'Handel: Messiah'.

Dunedin Consort recreates Bach's first Christmas at Leipzig (Vespers in the Nikolaikirche, 25 December 1723); the recording opens with a Gabrieli motet and includes organ preludes and a seasonal congregational chorale.

Director John Butt has given listeners an interpretation that will provide a refreshing outlook on this masterpiece and will show the Magnificat in a completely new light.

This recording marks the return of Dunedin Consort's star-studded cast including, Nicholas Mulroy, Matthew Brook, Joanne Lunn and Clare Wilkinson plus newcomer Julia Doyle.
"The sound (helped perhaps by the low pitch of A=392Hz) is a treat for the ear; the vocal soloists are lucid and distinctive, so that altogether this vital performance is not just a genuinely fascinating new slant on a familiar masterpiece..."
Gramphone Editor's Choice Dec 2015

"Dunedin Consort now turn their reconstructive gaze on Bach's first Christmas in Leipzig, in 1723. He offers a similarly absorbing liturgical framework for the musical stars of the Christmas Day Vespers [which] is undeniably compelling..."
BBC Music Magazine, "Choral & Song Choice" Dec 2015

"Another bull's-eye hit from John Butt's Dunedin Consort... brilliantly done." The Observer

"...yet another astonishing triumph...the musicianship is exquisite; the emotional impact is immediate. This is world class."
The Scotsman

Recording of the Month: "This is one of the most enjoyable and stimulating Bach discs to have come my way since ... well, since John Butt's account of the Johannes-Passion. The performance standards are uniformly excellent and the music is life-enhancing...I'm in no doubt that I shall be listening to this superb disc at some stage on Christmas morning."
