J.S. Bach: St John Passion
St John Passion recounts the dramatic story from the Gospel of St John of how Jesus was captured, judged and crucified. The pain of his betrayal, the bewilderment of the apostles and the anger of the crowds are all conveyed through Bach’s vivid musical depiction of a cast of colourful characters in this powerful work, threaded through with traditional German chorales.
Conducted by Christopher Herrick during his final year as the Choir’s Conductor, and accompanied by the superb Brandenburg Sinfonia, Twickenham Choral invite you to join them to mark the 300th anniversary of the first performance on Good Friday 1724 of this colossus of musical achievement.
