International soloists Sir Willard White and Toby Spence join the period instrumentalists and singers of Armonico Consort to perform Bach’s masterpiece. Whatever your own spiritual beliefs, everyone should hear the St Matthew Passion at least once, and there’s no more immediate way to experience it than in this performance.
A work of genius, combining the most perfectly formed recitative with Bach’s most beautiful arias, Bach’s St Matthew Passion vividly, passionately and dramatically depicts the intense emotions and humanity of the Passion of Christ.
