THE CROWN JEWEL OF CHORAL MUSIC
Bach’s St. Matthew Passion is life-changing. Ambitious. And the most significant choral composition in classical music. To perform it requires two choruses, two orchestras, nine solos, and an artistry potent enough to rise to the vigor of Bach’s musical challenge.
TO WITNESS IT IS LIFE-CHANGING
For three hundred years, the Passion has moved audiences with its spiritual potency. It touches the heart, awakens the imagination, and renews faith. Standing as one of the pillars of sacred classical music, it is at once monumental and intimate, deeply sorrowful and powerful.
