Bach's Mattheus Passion....Mendelssohn's take on it

April 8th, 2014

This week mixing and editing our recording for the TV broadcasting (BRAVA) of Felix Mendelssohn's take on Johann Sebastian Bach's St. Matthew Passion, performed by The Netherlands Symphony Orchestra (Nederlands Symfonieorkest) and Consensus Vocalis.

So much the same music, but still very different....clarinets replacing Oboe d'amores for instance and alto aria's rewritten for soprano. The main organ accompanying the choir. Interesting stuff!

What a sound here in the studio in 5.1! Almost beats real life...
