It is a great testament to the genius of JS Bach that his Passion settings continue  to speak at a profound level to those of Christian faith, to those of other faiths, and to those who profess no religious faith at all.

 

At every turn in this work, the composer’s choice of instrumental timbre, solo voice or choral sound is perfectly, exquisitely, apt - propelling the story forwards or expressing the human response. The recitativo writing for the Evangelist is wonderfully expressive, yet a model of clarity.

 

Cecil B. DeMille referred to the events leading up to Christ’s Passion as ‘the greatest story ever told’. Join us at St John’s Smith Square – the perfect acoustic for this work – as we tell that story through the medium of some of the greatest music ever written.
