J. S. Bach St Matthew Passion at Southwell Minster

About

J. S. Bach St Matthew Passion by Nottingham Harmonic Choir 
Southwell Minster
Saturday 17th Mar 2018 | 7pm

Nottingham Harmonic Choir | The Musical and Amicable Society

Conductor Richard Laing​​​

Universally accepted as a masterwork by Christians and non-Christians alike, and described as the musical equivalent of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel, Bach’s St Matthew Passion dramatically tells the story of the Last Supper and Good Friday. The narrative is carried by the Evangelist, whilst the Chorus takes on different roles, from bewildered disciples to a crowd calling for Jesus’ death; soloists play the parts of other characters such as Judas and Pilate.

Reflection on the unfolding events is provided by arias and some of Bach’s best-known chorales. The music is as powerful now as when it was first performed in 1727 - where better to hear it than in the magnificent Southwell Minster?
