J S Bach: St. Matthew Passion

Premieres online on 3rd April 2021, then available on demand until 1st June.

JS Bach’s monumental reflection on the final days of Christ’s life has a central place in the celebration of Easter not only for audiences worldwide, but also for us as players and singers. It therefore gives us huge pleasure to be able to share this concert film with you, our first performance together as an ensemble for over a year. We will perform the work without a conductor, with one-voice-per-part and single instrumentalists, in one of London’s most beautiful Georgian churches in the heart of Westminster.: St John’s Smith Square.

This concert film will be available to watch until the 1st of June 2021 on demand, and we are also offering the opportunity to receive a printed programme with texts, translations and reflections on the music from our musicians – a perfect accompaniment to your digital concert-going experience. Another option, perfect as an Easter gift, is to receive access to the concert, a programme, and a copy of our CD of cantatas BWV 106 and 182, released in 2019 on Hyperion records. Click on the link below to purchase your ticket
