In his review of the recording of Bach's St Matthew Passion by the Netherlands Bach Society Gavin Dixon writes that the recording was made in the Museum Catharijneconvemt. That is definitely not true: the museum doesn't have any space where such a recording could be made. The venue where the recording was made isn't mentioned in the booklet. As the Bach Society usually gives a series of performances in Passiontide, I think this is a compilation of live recordings made at several locations. Why the booklet doesn't mention them is a mystery to me. The cooperation with the museum only concerns the inclusion of paintings in the booklet.
