Programme Note

City of Bristol Choir and professional orchestra The Lochrian Ensemble perform Bach’s mighty setting of the Gospel narrative, which recounts the events of Christ’s final days – betrayal, trial and crucifixion – in music brimming with power and drama.

The magnificent acoustic of St George’s Bristol makes it the perfect setting for what promises to be a thrilling performance of this compelling and noble work, sung in English and German.   The Evangelist is Nicholas Mulroy, widely known for his performances with the leading interpreters of Baroque music, including Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Paul McCreesh and the Gabrieli Consort and the King’s Consort.
