Format: Audio CD
Naxos doesn't usually record large works twice, but this is their second St. John Passion, the earlier one being by the Baroque Scholars and a fine one. This one has the unusual feature of being almost entirely a product of the music scholars of New College, Oxford. The choir is the New College Choir (SATB 14,4,4,5), using boy trebles and altos (as Bach did at St. Thomas Church, Leipzig). The soloists are all graduates or current members of the the college. The instrumentalists, using historically accurate instruments and performance practice, is the so-called 'Collegium Novum' (Latin for 'New College,' get it?), an ad-hoc group led by the well-known baroque violinist Alison Bury and put together for this recording, so it could be called, I suppose, the 'New New College.' The conductor is Edward Higginbottom, who has been director of the Choir since the mid-1970s.
One might think, since this is something of a special performance, gathering together current and 'old boy' singers, that it was something of a vanity project, but in fact it holds its own with other HIP performances of Bach's Johannespassion. It is sung in German and the booklet provides a German-English text. The Evangelist is sung by the fine tenor James Gilchrist (a treble in the Choir in the 1970s). Christ is sung by bass John Bernays (New College 1986-1990) and Pilate by bass Eamonn Dougan (New College 1993-1996). The other soloists are the noted countertenor James Bowman (boy alto 1960s), tenor Matthew Beale (1993-1996), bass Colin Baldy (a vocal coach at New College in the 1990s). The soprano soloist is a remarkable treble currently in the New College Choir, Joe Littlewood. He deserves special mention because of his intelligent musicality and sweet, true voice.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Santa Fe Listener HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on December 25, 2007
Format: Audio CD
If any of us were to visit New College, Oxford on an Easter Sunday when the college's in-house forces performed the St. John Passion, we'd be floored. For a small, localized group to offer period Bach with such naturalness and unforced feeling is remarkable. There's no churchiness on the one hand or academic dustiness on the other. In terms of human expression, Higginbottom's reading surpasses even the vaunted John Eliot Gardiner, who sounds stiff and antiseptic by comparison. This, despite the fact that all the soloists here are in-house, too, (including a boy reble for the soprano part), while Gardiner has some world-class soloists. Tenor James Gilchrist and countertenor James Bowman are the only established professionls here, to my knowledge.

What makes up for the shortcomings of the soloists is the sense of being present at a live -- and living -- eent. YOu can't hold the Evangelist or Jesus up to the best in the field, yet both are sincere without being stagey. In other words, if you take this budget St. John Passion as all of a piece, it's emotionally satisfying without reaching great heights of professionalism.
