'Butt and his forces yield a dramatic, exactingly nuanced, profoundly considered reading, compelling in its integrity and text-driven immediacy … it's nothing short of a revelation' (BBC Music Magazine) » More

'Enclosed within is a really fine, taut, mainly single-voice account of Bach's music, led by Nicholas Mulroy's powerful Evangelist and Matthew Brook's affecting Christ … John Butt's research and direction are an object lesson in musical study brought to compelling life' (The Observer)

'One of the most stimulating versions of Bach's masterpieces that has come my way and it demands to be heard by all Bach devotees … I will not be surprised if this recording of the St. John Passion comes to be regarded as a landmark in the work's already distinguished discography' (MusicWeb International) » More

'The Dunedin Consort's John Passion is something else … this is far and away the most musical and satisfying performance around among the many, many versions available; no-one—however many recordings you have of the John Passion—should be without it' (Early Music) » More
