    I've been holding off on purchasing this. Irrational, really.

    Also a Savall fan and thought this deserved a response... so after hearing a few tracks on Spotify, my answer would be no. It sounds unfinished to me, the instrumentation is off-balance or something, and some tracks sound too familiar. The vocal soloists are OK if you like countertenors. But hear for yourself if you can.

    I have his recording of the B Minor Mass, and it isn't high on my list. I think I prefer him more for instrumental Bach, and not vocal. Oh well. Still, though, I think I have some of his recordings of Biber's masses that I really enjoy.

    Agreed. His excellence in more folkish vocals do not carry over well in Bach even though he's great with Art of Fugue etc. For a good recent release by Jordi, try Terpsichore or Musica Nova. I also like the music in the Ibn Batutta set but can do without the recits.

    Ah yes, almost forgot the first Savall recording I ever heard was his Istanbul, and loved it.

    I certainly can. This reconstructed "St Mark Passion" was a highlight of my Easter listening.

    It may be unfinished, but it's definitely a 'must' listen for anyone who loves Bach's music.

    I really like Johann Hermann Schein's Quem Vidistis Pastores.
    Beautiful work using polychoral technique.
