Arcangelo brings together some of the world’s finest musicians who excel on both historical and modern instruments under the direction of Jonathan Cohen. Equally, their handpicked choir features the cream of the British choral scene. These are performers of dazzling technical ability, but they also have a passion for faithful interpretation that goes far beyond historical understanding. On their latest album, Arcangelo presents no fewer than three Bachs—father and two sons—and three wonderful versions of the Magnificat written over the course of the eighteenth century: one setting very familiar, the other two much less so.
