Paring down his vocal forces to just nine voices, and opting for an accompaniment harpsichord and contrabassoon continuo, Minkowski achieves great clarity but also great depth of texture. Solos and choruses are shared, and there is no weak link anywhere in the line-up. Odinius’s Evangelist is superb, clear and focused, pairing nicely with Immler’s rich, sonorous Jesus. Orchestral playing and dramatic timing are of the very highest standard throughout, matched by fine recorded sound. A thought-provoking alternative to last month’s King’s Cambridge release.
