This is a reissue of a 1993 recording, combining well-known Bach (the Magnificat) with the more obscure (all four of the missa brevis settings). Bonney and Trost are first-rate soloists; I think Bar has a bit too much vibrato for works of this period, even though the music is played on modern instruments. The chorus makes a healthy sound, but is not gigantic. Conductor Schreier had been singing Bach for years, and certainly knows how it ought to go, capturing the dance flavor of a lot of historically-informed recordings. Documentation is a bit sketchy (it sounds like the trio for female voices in the Magnificat is sung here by a semi-chorus), and texts are not supplied (nor are they available online, though the tray card says they are). However, this is a recommendable, well-recorded set for those who don't care for the sound of period instruments and, at a two-fer price, is a bargain.
