Many thanks for this beauty to our friend Booksaregood
This recording is amazing, beautiful, audiophile in every way. It was used by several studios and magazines to test HiFi components.
Among them this here: AUDIOREVIEWS

Ideally Bach’s wonderful St.John Passion should be heard in the original German in order to fully appreciate the ideal marriage of text and music which makes Bach such a paragon of excellence amongst composers. There are some excellent versions available and if I could gently push you in the direction of this wonderful and clean recorded little known Chamber Ensemble of the Smithsonian Society, then I would be satisfied that I’ve accomplished my good deed for the day.
Recorded 22-28 March 1989 at the Renwick Gallery, Washington D.C.
