The pan-continental Chamber Choir of Europe recorded a number of Mozart works for the Dutch budget label Brilliant as part of a large Mozart edition, and these performances have been reissued several times, singly and in groups. The choir always has an attractively clear sound that comes from the youth of its members, and this is one of the group's most distinctive if not necessarily one that will appeal to every listener. Conductor Nicol Matt generally falls close to the middle of the road, but here he runs counter to type among recordings of Mozart's "Great" Mass in C minor, K. 427. The modest dimensions he gives the work, aided by close-up microphone placement that brings out individual voices in the group, are fresh and cogently thought out.

After its successes in the field of German Baroque religious music, here VOX LUMINIS proposes the first complete recording of the motets by Johann Sebastian Bach's ancestors. These motets, most of which are written for double choir, blend the old tradition inherited from the polyphony of the Renaissance with expressive work inspired by the fashions of the madrigal. The chorale melodies that are quite frequently associated with these motets contribute this colour typical of the Lutheran liturgical repertoire.

This performance of Bach's St. Matthew Passion is sung in English and played on modern instrument. If that bothers you, don't bother checking out this recording. If it doesn't bother you, and you like the idea of a heartrending, awe-inspiring, and profoundly moving performance of Bach's sacred dramatic masterpiece, by all means, try this recording. David Willcocks, the dean of English choral conductors, leads the combined forces of the Bach Choir, the Boys' Choir of St. Paul's Cathedral, and the Thames Chamber Orchestra along with six A-list British soloists in a deeply human, intensely spiritual, and amazingly dramatic performance of the work.

Bach's motets are surrounded by much uncertainty. To begin with, we do not know how many he actually composed, as some have been lost while others have been wrongly attributed to him. Although several of the motets were written for funerals, it is also uncertain if they were actually performed during church services: as a genre, the motet was established as early as the 13th century and by Bach's time it was considered to be old-fashioned and backward-looking.
