Tenor Matthew Anderson was an inspired Uriel, his firm, appealing voice flooding cavernous Emmanuel Church. His great aria about the creation of man, "Mit Würd' und Hoheit angetan" ("In native worth with honor clad"), was one of the keystones of this performance.

Matthew Anderson, in the role of the Evangelist, narrated the Passion story through recitatives which were performed with the greatest sensitivity; his tonal and dynamic colorations conveyed the words in compelling fashion. The part of the Evangelist is enormous, and Mr. Anderson performed it with great skill and ease.
