From Bach's manuscript - first recording of the B minor Mass according to the "Dresden Parts"
Although the Mass in B minor is one of Johann Sebastian Bach's most frequently performed vocal works, it continues to present performers and scientists with enigmas. The brilliant new recording under the direction of Hans-Christoph Rademann is based upon the new Carus edition and rigorously follows – in the Kyrie and Gloria – Bach's own meticulously configured "Dresdner Stimmen" (Dresden parts). Thus, for the first time it is based exclusively on the musical text that originated from Johann Sebastian Bach's own pen. This recording is released as a double CD or in a Deluxe version , which includes both the CDs and a DVD with additional material.
