St Mark Passion (BWV 247): A reconstruction.Recitatives and turbae by Reinhard Keiser (1674-1739).Although all that survives of Bach's ‚ÄúSt. Mark Passion‚ÄĚ is Picander's libretto virtually all the arias and choruses can be reconstructed from ‚Äúparody‚ÄĚ versions. The original recitatives and turbae however are probably lost forever. Rather than rewriting these numbers ‚Äúin Bachs's style‚ÄĚ the editor Austin Harvey Gomme has added passages from Reinhard Keiser's setting of the Passion (a setting highly esteemed by Bach who performed it several times) thereby allowing this lost work to be performed in its entirety. A detailed preface sheds further light on thisunique reconstruction based on the New Bach Edition.Full score (BA5209) and vocal score (BA5209-90) available for sale.Performance material (BA5209-72) available for hire.
