ST. MATTHEW PASSION

Bach’s St. Matthew Passion is one of the most powerful works of all time, yet also one of the most delicate blends of words and music. It describes the Easter events in a way that cannot fail to sweep the listener along. The story is told in the recitatives (sung speech) while the chorales and arias create a unique and moving commentary. The beauty and power of Bach’s music hold the listener in their grasp long after the performance ends.
