Gabrieli Consort & Players
Paul McCreesh conductor

Gabrieli return to the Lausanne Bach Festival following an acclaimed St Matthew Passion in 2011 with JS Bach’s St John Passion. Internationally renowned evangelist Nicholas Mulroy leads a talented Consort cast of British soloists in an intimate reading of this beloved work.

‘With textures so spare, there were no hiding places, but then the members of the Gabrieli Consort hardly need them. The sound was lithe and full of detail; the singing was always a tapestry of individually coloured vocal strands … all outstanding.’ The Guardian
