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.
