From the great swirling phrases of the opening chorus (Herr, unser Herrscher) to the resigned sorrow of the close (Ruht wohl), Bach’s St John Passion chronicles the suffering and death of Jesus Christ in the music of extraordinary force, pathos and potency.
Ingeniously, the work pivots between narration and reflection, thereby casting the listener into the fray, as it were. Rarely has Bach’s gift for drama been so acute. Conducting this landmark performance is distinguished British choral director and Baroque specialist, Stephen Layton, who is bringing with him a cast of carefully selected soloists.
Sung in German with subtitles.
