Following their acclaimed release of Bach’s Ascension Oratorio, the Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists have recorded the Easter Oratorio BWV 249, one of Bach’s less-performed choral works. The Easter Oratorio was composed originally as a simple cantata, and was later revised into a more polished piece, with a meditative emphasis and underlying narrative flavour. The work is paired with Bach’s Actus tragicus BWV 106.

The album is packaged in our usual casebook packaging and contains a 28 pages booklet with notes by John Eliot Gardiner and texts in German, English and French.

Recorded in London, June 2013
