Julia Doyle uses her great soprano to make a harrowing pearl out of the aria „Zerfliesse, mein Herz" (O melt now, my bosom). Joy and sorrow, music and theology, in a nutshell, this "anxious pleasure" (ängstliche Vergnügen) as sung in the Arioso (No. 19). Choir and orchestra of the Bach Foundation St. Gallen move in this field in a somnambulistic way. An excellent CD!" - Martin Preisser, St. Galler Tagblatt
Set of 3 CDs including the full recording of Bach’s St Matthew Passion. This recording was released in 2014 to critical acclaim, which makes us of course a little proud. We indeed believe that it should be part of any collector’s library.

a musical wonder of the world
Some wonders of the world can be marvelled at in awe. In the sphere of music, Bach and his compositions certainly fit the bill. But it is not enough to simply contemplate and admire his legacy: Bach’s works must be rediscovered and passed on by each generation of musicians anew – and that is the goal of our foundation.
A platform for cantata lovers
Bachipedia is more than “just” a streaming platform. On Bachipedia, all the content that the Foundation has collected, written, researched and published about a cantata is made available – free of charge – together with the corresponding cantata recording.
