Robert Shaw is hailed to this day as the most influential and celebrated choral conductor to have ever been trained in the United States. His lifelong commitment in bringing the great masterworks of the choral/orchestral repertoire to American audiences is legendary. To assist in this endeavor, he translated and published several choral masterworks into English for accessibility to the American audiences. This performance used the Robert Shaw English adaptation of the St. Matthew Passion which he completed and published in 1959.
