      Bach: Easter Oratorio, BWV 249 (41:07)

      Hannah Morrison, soprano; Meg Bragle, alto; Nicholas Mulroy, tenor; Peter Harvey, bass; Monteverdi Choir, English Baroque Soloists / Sir John Eliot Gardiner

      Following their acclaimed release of Bach’s Ascension Oratorio, the Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists have recorded the Easter Oratorio, BWV 249, one of Bach’s less-performed choral works. The Easter Oratorio was composed originally as a simple cantata, and was later revised into a more polished piece with a meditative emphasis and underlying narrative flavor. The work is paired with Bach’s Actus tragicus, BWV 106.
