    I just went hunting for this, and it appears not to be available on CD - only in vinyl. Do you have it on CD?

    "Rennaisance latin polyphony... for range of expression he towered above contemporaries, only Tallis in the same category..."

    I think Hoffmann should hear this if he hasn't already

    The Tallis Scholars are amazing! I just downloaded this off iTunes - almost 1/2 the price of real-life CDs!

    You are a bad influence. Bad. I'm sitting here listening to my brand-y new Paul McCreesh Monteverdi Vespers and wondering if there is more where this came from. Jeez.

    Do they sell tea cabinets in the U.S., by any chance?

    I forgot to say that what I thought was a very cool touch with the McCreesh Vespers CD is that the accompanying booklet is printed on paper resembling parchment. I nearly fainted.

    I do have a CD with this program combined with Mozart arias sung by Dame Joan Sutherland.
    It was made under license ( together with six other titles) by Classic limited collection ,a company from the U.K
    They do not longer exists but I am sure it will turn up on that Australian Eloquence series or Decca most wanted.

    Hoffmann and Clayton back in sync!

    same with the Alessandrini recording. Absolutely love it; that all important new book/CD smell! Actually just hearing that has made me consider getting the McCreesh as well.
    Not as potty as normal Clayton behaviour; the vespers can come in various formats. They are prayers and so I think God doesn't really mind what combination of psalms/composers they come in. The vespers mostly come in various formats, with different psalms included or not.
    Similarly if you come to hear the Alessandrini recording, Beatus Vir is one of my favourites...

    It completely redefines the work from my previous understanding.

    I can listen to this on streaming but I feel like I need to own this CD. Why? I am confused.

    again

    This is that time of year that my country is getting in the mood for this work.
    From now until Easter there are I think 100 performances , from big orchestras to small church ones.
    I listen to this at the moment.

    Well here's to wishing I could get some of that...

    I'm developing a perhaps slightly unhealthy obsession with this work, eyes (or ears or heart) opened by Harnoncourt recording

    latest hearing this morning listening to the Suzuki recording

    Bach, J S: St Matthew Passion, BWV244
    Gerd Türk, Peter Kooij, Nancy Argenta, Robin Blaze, Makoto Sakurada, Chiyuki Urano
    Bach Collegium Japan, Masaaki Suzuki

    Preference is still for Harnoncourt, then
    Suzuki
    Jacobs
    Gardiner

    Charles Daniels (Evangelist), Peter Harvey (Christus), Bethany Seymour, Helen Neeves (sopranos), Sally Bruce-Payne, Nancy Cole (altos), Joseph Cornwell, Julian Podger (tenors), Peter Harvey, Matthew Brook (basses)

    This stands out for its excellent soloists and wonderful sounds.

    I think Clayton would like this for the lovely music, Roberta Invernizzi, and the gorgeous packaging:
