Because he wasn't satisfied with the solutions others had found for reconstructing the St. Mark Passion, Koopman used this creative assingment for his own recontruction. Koopman's knowledge of Bach is very profound and in Bachs works he found much he could use. It were mainly recitatives he had to compose himself in Bachs style. The outcome of this project is delightful and will be released on DVD this year!
