Excellent compilation of representative choruses.

The Monteverdi Choir began with a vision by John Eliot Gardiner, that is to make Monteverdi's 'Vespers' sound like it must have sounded in St. Mark's in Venice around 1610. And so, not wanting to emulate the English cathedral choir sound, he handpicked a choir, working with them for months on end, until he had formed a new ensemble. Thus the birth of the present-day Monteverdi Choir. The choir first appeared in 1964 in King's College Chapel and continues successfuly to this day, drawing on a mixture of professionals and highly qualified amateurs.

The selections on this disc are from recordings made by the Choir dating from 1985 thru 1992. It is a very interesting and well-chosen group of works, mostly very upbeat and 'happy' and 'bouncy' as only J.S. Bach can be!!!!Even though I own every disc from which these were taken, it is so great to have them all on one recording to enjoy as a group. And for the price at the moment, it is worth it.

Perfection is the name for anything that Gardiner puts together and this choir personifies the BEST in choral music.--Amazon
