    Not sure if this is the new packaging or the old. Wonderful box set. I think this was my first Brilliant Classics purchase, and I had no idea what to expect, quality-wise. Very happy with the purchase.

    the packaging doesn't matter , what's important is this heavenly recording. It's indescribably beautiful especially in CD 4 where Heinrich Isaac Missa Paschalis happens to be

    JS Bach: Markus Passion

    David Szigetvári, Raffaele Pe, Reinoud Van Mechelen, Marta Mathéu, Aina Albajar Sigalés, Konstantin Wolff, Javier Jiménez-Cuevas, Julián Millán, Simón Millán, Víctor Vilca, Víctor Sordo
    Le Concert des Nations, La Capella Reial de Catalunya Jordi Savall


    "Created in Leipzig in March 1731 and then revised for the Holy Week of 1744, on a text by Christian Friedrich Henrici, aka Picander, the St Mark Passion was composed by Bach using existing works.

    The autograph score is lost but recent musicological research shows that some pieces like the Funeral Ode BWV 198 or an aria from the cantata BWV 54 had been recycled.

    Every performance is thus a reconstruction by the performing artist. Jordi Savall offers his own vision, made of subtle chiaroscuro, suffused with serenity and meditation."

    Charpentier: Histoires sacrées

    Ensemble Correspondances, Sébastien Daucé



    "Marc-Antoine Charpentier is the only composer of the age of Louis XIV to have distinguished himself so remarkably in the genre of the ‘sacred history’: he wrote more than thirty such works, all composed after his residence in Italy.

    Sébastien Daucé and the Ensemble Correspondances have carefully extracted from this outstanding corpus a number of gems that reflect both his experience in Rome (probably studying with Carissimi, the master of the oratorio) and the humanist concerns of an entire period.

    Like a miniature opera, each piece relates an exemplary destiny, including several strong-willed women (Judith, Cecilia, Mary Magdalene) and a deep friendship put to the test (Mors Saülis and Jonathæ).

    I am a huge Savall fan, especially with his Bach, but have not yet heard this recording. Do you recommend it?
