Notes & Reviews:

Bach produced his St John Passion in 1724, and it was his first setting of the Passion story. Bach's work underwent several revisions right up to the late 1740s, and was performed regularly in all versions. Passion settings appear to have occupied Bach from early on in his career. Some of the material used in the St John Passion dates back to 1714, and it is now believed that Bach reused material from an earlier and now lost Passion. This recording was made in 2003, using the 1725 version.
