The acclaimed bass Andrew Slater is an asset to this recording with his powerful voice. In the carefully chosen cast of soloists there are two sopranos who make great triumphs on the international stage: Olga Zinovieva and Jana Mamonova. Countertenor Sytse Buwalda brings an unequivocal amount of devotion to the work. Martinus Leusink has already had a great solo career as a young soprano. Since his voice change he has developed into one of the top tenors in the baroque world.
