Programme Note

First heard on Good Friday 1727, Bach’s “great passion” is the most monumental of his works. The deeply affecting setting of the trial, suffering and death of Jesus will be realised by a brilliant team of soloists, one of Britain’s most outstanding period instrument ensembles and the acclaimed Choir of Merton College, Oxford, with Merton’s girl choristers singing the ripieno chorus.
