Description: Although the original score of this work is one of the many in the Berliner Singakademie archive repatriated from Ukraine in 2001, it was not available to the performers when they made this recording in 2003. However, the entire work was reconstructed from Bach's instructions and, as with the other Passions which have already appeared from the composer's late years, we have a pastiche of J.S. Bach and Georg Benda with new arias, recititatives and choruses by C.P.E. himself. German-English texts. Doerthe Maria Sandmann (soprano), Elisabeth von Magnus (alto), Marcus Ullmann (tenor), Sebastian Bluth, Tobias Scharfenberger (basses), Windsbacher Knabenchor, Deutsche Kammer-Virtuosen Berlin; Karl-Friedrich Beringer.
