Ricercar Consort, Philippe Pierlot

A new recording from the Ricercar Consort is always special and this is no exception: here we have from Mirare, a new St John Passion.

Last year’s Bach Magnificat received excellent reviews including Gramophone Editor’s Choice, BBC CD Review disc of the week and a Critics’ Choice in Gramophone.

Gramophone Magazine

July 2011

“The one-to-a-part ensemble is always considered and, in isolation, often moving and theatrically effective.”

International Record Review

July 2011

“The great strength of this latest French release lies in the solo voices themselves. The Evangelist of Hans-Jorg Mammel is splendid in its clarity and brisk, no-nonsense delivery of the Passion story...Full marks must also go the the wind players of the Ricercar Consort...while Pierlot's direction gives the whole work a distinct feeling of purpose and shape, relating the Passion story with a pleasing absence of pretension or emotional weight.”
