Mass in B minor BWV 232
Conducted by Eric Ericson
Enrico Bortolazzi wrote (May 4, 1998):
(Regarding recordings of the Motets) My favourite is Eric Ericson on EMI label (Swedish). With a word I can say perfect! The choir is always well balanced and also the quality of the recording is very good, you can easily hear the two choirs on left and right and the orchestra is always under the voices.
Note that Eric Ericson is considered one of the most important choir directors.
Three or four years ago I listened on the radio the St. Matthew Passion (BWV 244) with this choir and the Drottingham Baroque Orchestra executed live at Brescia (Italy) and I liked it very much.
Do you know if Ericson recorded the Passion?
Arne Löfgren wrote (May 17, 1998):
I´m new on the list. My name is Arne Löfgren and I´m living in Borlange middle of Sweden. Now I just want to corect the name of the Swedish orhestra mensioned here. It is not "Drottingham..." but Drottningholm Baroque Orchestra. Drottning is Swedish for queen and holm means small island.
I have the B-minor mass with Ericson and this orchestra and Eric Ericson Chamber choir and I think its really good. Label: Vanguard Classics 99044/45 recorded 1992.
