Mass in B minor BWV 232 - conducted by Michel Corboz (1164 words)
Both his B Minor recordings use modern instruments, and yet in a sense his performances are informed by historical practices (small forces, controlled use of vibrato, use of mezza di voce, rather brisk tempos,...).
The Corboz rendition of the BWV 232 is a late Nineties recording and I cannot tell if it's on period-instruments or not.
The original Corboz recording from the early '70s is a favorite.
