by Johann Sebastian Bach
First performed in 1727, Bach’s St. Matthew Passion was rediscovered and performed by Mendelssohn in 1829. This monumental work by Bach encapsulates his brilliancy as a composer. The St. Matthew Passion retells the Easter week story through chorales, arias and narrative all through a unique voicing of double choir and orchestra. Featuring soloists Carla Wesby, Jeffrey Mandelbaum, Matthew Curran, and Blake Friedman. Come to Canterbury to begin your Lenten season with this dramatic story. This concert is not to be missed!
