BCW: Johannes-Passion BWV 245 - Revised & updated Discography

June 16, 2017:

The discography pages of J.S. Bach's Johannes-Passion BWV 245 on the BCW have been revised & updated. The discography is arranged chronologically by recording date. Currently there are 291 different recordings of the complete (or near complete) work, including 6 sung in English and one in French, and the number is continuing to grow rapidly. In the previous version of this discography from 2013 there were 245 recordings and in 2012 - 219. All the releases of each recording are presented as one entry.

Both commercial and non-commercial recordings are presented. In order to make this discography as comprehensive as possible, I have compiled info from every possible source I could find, including web recording databases, web-stores, YouTube, SoundCloud, IMSLP, other Johannes-Passion discographies, and more.

The discography is split into 9 pages, a page per a decade + a page for the English sung versions.
All the Discography pages, Discussions pages and other material are linked from the main page of Johannes-Passion BWV 245 on the BCW:
http://www.bach-cantatas.com/Vocal/BWV245.htm
The discography pages are inter-linked. You can start, for example, in the most recent page (2010-2019):
http://www.bach-cantatas.com/Vocal/BWV245-Rec8.htm
and go backward to the page of previous decade (2000-2009).
The revised discography includes many listening/watching options as part of the recording details. When you click a link to video/audio, a new window will open above the discography page and the video/audio will start to play.

With 291 recordings, the Johannes-Passion is currently the most recorded vocal work of J.S. Bach, surpassing even the popular Mass in B minor.
If you have any correction, addition or completion of missing details, please inform me.

Enjoy,
