Karl Richter’s performance makes the text real for me. If I’m going to spend 3.5 hours listening to the central message of Christianity then I want it done by people who at least give the impression of meaning what they sing. Karl Richter & Co. make me believe they believe what they sing by the reverence with which they convey the meaning of the text….

In his day, Karl Richter was considered a Bach “specialist.” We accord that title nowadays, if at all, to purveyors of period performance practice–and rightly so. But there’s something to be gained by appreciating earlier conceptions of how this music should go. If you favor a more “traditional” approach to Bach’s sacred music, featuring a large chorus, modern instruments and “operatic”-style singers, then you can’t do better than Richter’s 1964 account of the St. John Passion.
