The St. Matthew Passion

Jane Glover, conductor

BACH

Passion According to St. Matthew, BWV 244

Johann Sebastian Bach’s St. Matthew Passion speaks as urgently of compassion and hope today as it did when it was written 300 years ago—and when Music of the Baroque first performed it in 1974. One of the greatest creative achievements of all time and written for double chorus and orchestra, Bach’s masterpiece is the cornerstone of the 50th anniversary celebration.
