Customer Reviews

This is a steal!

This is identical to the recording on ITunes at $27.99. It's just as beautiful at $10.99. The best version, in fact, played on modern day instruments, for my money ($10.99)

Heaven should sound this good

Never mind that this is Bach performed in the style of Wagner. Karl Richter and his musicians, including Edith Mathis, Janet Baker, Peter Schreier, Matti Salminen and the incomparable Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, along with the Munich Bach Choir led by a gentleman named Georg Ratzinger (otherwise known these days as the current Pope's big brother) made this staggering recording some time around 1980. It is a towering performance, dramatic and supremely reverent.
I purchased the LP set in the '80's, later upgrading to the CDs and finally found it here on iTunes. Some things about the 21st century are pretty cool.

If you prefer "authentic" performances with "authentic" tempos and instruments, John Eliot Gardiner's offering might be a better fit. But for me this is my desert island recording. I hope heaven sounds this good.

What is the price

The price says: partial album. Does it mean the tunes have to be purchased one by one?
