Unplugged Bach at its best!

This record is Bach unplugged, it is bow string on catgut, wood timbres and soft echoes with little digital harshness. The music is pacy without loosing strict timing; it rejoyces. It is music Marriner -ated and gently aged. The ensemble is small and clearly defined and the beautiful Bach figuring excells in every piece . The first ever use of a keyboard instrument (harpsichord) as a solo instrument in No. 5 is only one highlight. Find a grassy slope under a large tree, pop in the headphones and go into the best of Bach's world. If the ipod had not been invented I would have needed a Bach transplant on the National Health after hearing this. Definitely one of my all time favorite recordings. Five stars on every count.
