Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Bach Choir of Bethlehem is proud to announce their most recent recording, Bach’s Saint John Passion – released just in time for Lenten remembrances. This masterwork of the choral repertoire received its first complete American performance in Bethlehem, PA in 1888. As befits the narrative by the “disciple whom Jesus loved,” this work is both an intimate and sublime meditation and a powerfully transcendent composition.
