Bach Choir of Bethlehem & Bach Festival Orchestra, Greg Funfgeld
CD - 2 discs
Usually despatched in 2 - 3 working days.
A masterwork of the choral repertory, performed by eminent soloists including Daniel Taylor.
The Bach Choir of Bethlehem is the oldest American Bach Choir.
Greg Funfgeld has been their artistic director and conductor since 1983.
“The Bach Choir creates a hearty, committed congregation singing chorales, and characterises effectively...Daniels proves a superb evangelist, matching his narrative pace to the dramatic action with great sensitivity, while William Sharp is a restraining Christus, convincing without over-dramatising...A nostalgic return to the days before lean, minimal Bach.”
