To the vocal lines of arias and duets, Bach composed gorgeous violin passages. In Bach: Violin & Voice, Hilary Hahn records these passages exquisitely, sharing this album with soprano Christine Schäfer and baritone Matthias Goerne, both also renowned Bach exponents. Selections from such masterpieces as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor are rendered with an unearthly beauty and a reverence that add to this recording's historical significance In truth, this album features not two but three singers--the magical tone from Hahn's Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume conveys a beauty which can be attributed to a golden voice.
