Notes and Editorial Reviews

Johann Sebastian Bach’s St. John Passion was written for Holy Week in 1724, directly after Bach was appointed as cantor of St. Thomas’s Church in Leipzig. St. John’s Passion is a true Baroque masterpiece, and still retains all of its vivacity and brightness nearly three centuries after its composition. This recording is brilliantly performed by the Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks alongside Concerto Köln, both highly recognized and admired ensembles.
