One of the world’s leading liturgical choirs, the Saint Thomas Choir of Men & Boys of Fifth Avenue, New York, with their renowned director John Scott, begin a major new collaboration with Resonus Classics with this new and exciting recording of Motets by J.S. Bach.
Representing a vital cornerstone of Baroque choral repertoire these seven Motets are often emotive, joyous, intensely virtuosic, and are some of the most accomplished and sublime of Bach’s many musical achievements.

'The tone of the New York trebles is sweet and healthy. Fans of the cathedral choir sound will relish an old fashioned large forces performance with organ, cello and violone continuo [...] The over-lapping iterations of 'Singet! Singet!' in Singet dem Herrn ein neues Lied (BWV 225) are brilliantly energised [...] Scott's shaping of the chorales in Jesu, meine Freude (BWV 227) is suave'
BBC Music Magazine
'The choir bring a sense of freshness, vigour and refinement to these works. John Scott has achieved very high standards of discipline and rhythmic precision. Intonation is pristine. Clarity of the polyphonic textures is scrupulously delineated'
'[...] sublime music in fine performances'
'[...] singing, recording and documentation are all good [...] he instrumentalists on the recording are never obtrusive'
