JS Bach — St Matthew Passion

Stephen Cleobury – conductor
James Gilchrist – Evangelist
Choir of King’s College, Cambridge

Bach’s wife referred to it as the ‘Great Passion’. The composer himself broke with protocol, penning the score with red as well as brown ink. Both knew that in the Matthew Passion, Bach had created something special – perhaps even something monumental.

As part of Stephen Cleobury’s final celebration of Easter at King’s, we join the conductor and King’s College Choir to present Bach’s musical telling of Christ’s final hours on earth under the chapel’s famous vaulted ceiling, before performing the work with the Chapel Choir of the Royal Hospital Chelsea in London’s Cadogan Hall under conductor William Vann.

This iconic score for vocal soloists, two choirs and two orchestras combines drama with devotion like no other. It questions, challenges and reassures, and contains some of the most beautiful and exquisitely crafted music from a composer who excelled in both those fields.
