Performers Conductor Ensemble
  • >

Notes & Reviews:

Bach composed five Passion settings, but only those based on the gospels of St Matthew and St John have survived. The first version of his St Matthew Passion, scored for two choirs and two orchestras, was performed on Good Friday in either 1727 or 1729. The whole work is in two parts: the first taking its narrative from the events leading up to Christ's betrayal, the second from His condemnation and crucifixion.
