Monumental and yet grippingly immediate, Bach’s St Matthew Passion tells the profound drama of Christ’s last days with music of aching beauty. Every musical possibility is used to express and sustain an extraordinary range of feelings: love, sacrifice, betrayal, suffering, remorse, helplessness and shame. This most sublime and emotionally charged piece is particularly powerful in the week before Easter, especially in the hands of acclaimed Bach specialists Ex Cathedra.
Sung in German.
