This recording is just amazing! The brass quintet sound gives the music a new feeling, without changing the overall soothing or touching impression. If you heard the Canadian Brass' long time favorite "Toccata and Fugue" or the album "Art of the Fugue", you know that this group really has a feeling for Bach's music -- even though the instrumentation might sound strange, if you haven't heard it yet.
