  1. Having sung this, I especially appreciated the vocal sensitivity of the Russian choir’s performance (I think I preferred them to Paul Hillier, even at YouTube low fi). You forget how gorgeous this is. Thanks again for the postings.

    I love this music. In the winter I have it on my ipod as I walk to my early church meetings. (Bach in the summer.) Thanks for the whole series.

    “I think I preferred them to Paul Hillier”

    Heresy!! (But then I’m a heathen who even loves the old Robert Shaw recording, so what do I know?)

  4. This is beautiful. I appreciate you sharing these, Kristine.
