1 edition published in 1995 in German and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unter den zahlreichen Vertonungen des Leidens und Sterbens Jesu nach dem Evangelisten Matthäus ragt Bachs Beitrag als einsamer Gipfelpunkt hervor.

Dadurch entsteht ein faszinierend transparenter Klang von eindringlicher Schlichtheit. Das informative Beiheft enthält neben dem gesamten Text auch Gedanken zur Aufführungspraxis der Passionen
