St John Passion
Our offical press release:
“For many, Bach’s Passions are an essential part of the pre-Easter season. Baroque specialist Piers Maxim conducts the superb Epsom Chamber Choir accompanied by a period instrument orchestra for this performance of the St John Passion. Though the shorter of the two great choral Passions, it is no less emotionally charged and dramatic. With a line-up of top professional soloists this will be a performance of London concert-hall quality, right on your doorstep. A real treat for Bach lovers.”
This is the opening chorus sung and played by the Taverner Consort and Players conducted by Andrew Parrott.
