Bach’s St John Passion tells the profound human drama of Christ’s last days with utterly transfixing music. The pulsating opening chorus sets the mood, and we are drawn to share the anger of the mob, to empathize with Pilate’s predicament, and to feel the anguish of the solo arias, heightened by the melancholic sounds of the period instruments – not least the tender agony of ‘Es ist vollbracht’ (It is finished).


We are delighted to give the traditional Good Friday performance as part of THSH’s Birmingham Classical season.


This concert will end at approximately 4.15pm.
