Jesus’s last hours in a benchmark of the Baroque

For the past 50 years whenever we have thought of Bach, we have thought of Philippe Herreweghe and his unsurpassed Collegium Vocale Ghent. In this jubilee year they bring us Bach’s St John Passion. Its text combines poetry with the Biblical Passion story. The music moves between narrative recitatives and choruses, lyrical and contemplative arias and devout chorales.  Even those who don’t share Bach’s Protestant faith will be enraptured by this exquisite music, which reflects on the great themes of life and death.
