BACH ST JOHN PASSION online concert

Bach’s St John Passion draws us into the drama of Christ’s last days with utterly transfixing music. The pulsating opening chorus sets the mood. We are compelled to share the anger of the mob, to empathize with Pilate, and to feel the anguish of the solo arias. Sunday 9 May, 4pm. Ticketholders have unlimited access until 6 June.
