Composed by Johann Sebastian Bach, this monumental work is one of the Crown Jewels of the entire choral repertoire.
Not often performed by smaller choral societies, it calls for full double choirs and double orchestras. It is a music drama, perhaps not what one expects from a composer connected so closely to the church.
Come with us on a journey exploring the last days of a man who gave rise to one of the great religions of the planet.
Get involved in the narration, the emotive reflection by individuals around him as events unfold and the meditation of the larger congregation.
The Chorus will be joined by the professional Meridian Sinfonia, best known for their authentic and highly acclaimed performances on period instruments.
